From art to agriculture: Emerald Gardens

Roberto Meza was working as a multi-media artist and MIT graduate student when he encountered some health challenges. He found that eating healthy greens restored his health and spirit so powerfully that he started apprenticing with a farmer and then moved to Colorado to start Emerald Gardens, a greenhouse-based farm that delivers microgreens to customers in the Denver area—and brings a focus to issues of food sovereignty, equity, and building a robust local food system.

Roberto will be a speaker at the Regenerate Conference on the Plenary Panel – Community Resilience in Agriculture During Uncertain Times on November 4th.
