Forward Greens Launches Indoor Farming in Oregon and Washington

New, clever-tech farming has arrived in the Pacific Northwest! Upstart produce farm Forward Greens (– formerly West Village Farms- recently repurposed a former HP printer factory in Vancouver, Washington to create an indoor farm. At Forward Greens, food is grown up, not out, meaning that growing trays are stacked high- towering under the cavernous 28 foot ceiling of the old printer factory. The Forward Greens vertical farm has many advantages over traditional produce growers:

-Full control over light, land, and water use to provide optimal growing conditions for the plants

-Year-round, contamination-free growing not impacted by weather

-No pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides are needed or used

-95% less water use than an outdoor farm

-Located in Portland’s Metro area, delivery time from harvest to store shelf a speedy (and fresh) 48 hours or less.

Everything at Forward Greens seems to radiate innovation. For example, packaging has been reinvented. Traditional produce growers use PET plastic clamshells, which are not recyclable in the Pacific Northwest. Forward Greens, in contrast, has developed a resealable, tetrahedral shaped film bag that uses 12x less plastic and has 8x less carbon impact. The bags reinforce the Forward Greens commitment to minimizing the environmental impact of food production.

Forward Greens grows premium, curated greens mixes available at premium grocery stores like Whole Foods, Zupan’s, Metro Markets, and New Seasons. Says founder Ken Kaneko, “We’re excited to announce our new packaging. Our primary focus is to serve the environment. We believe planting the seeds to create a cleaner future for generations to come. We now provide the best packaging to preserve the tastiest greens while minimizing the impact on our environment.”

Counting whales from space pitched as key to saving them

PORTLAND, Maine — An aquarium and an engineering firm in Massachusetts are partnering on a project to better protect whales by monitoring them from space. New England Aquarium of Boston and Draper of Cambridge say whale conservation needs new, higher-tech solutions to protect whales from extinction.

US heads to court to build Trump border wall in Texas

Oct 29, 2020

HOUSTON — Three years into Donald Trump's presidency, the U.S. government is ramping up its efforts to seize private land in Texas to build a border wall. Trump's signature campaign promise has consistently faced political, legal, and environmental obstacles in Texas, which has the largest section of the U.S.-Mexico border, most of it without fencing. And much of the land along the Rio Grande, the river that forms the border in Texas, is privately held and environmentally sensitive. Almost no land has been taken so far. But Department of Justice lawyers have filed three lawsuits this month seeking to take...

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs.

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Oct 29, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
