Engineer adapts veggie business for a changing planet

We frequently hear about how the planet is changing and that we need to adapt, but rarely see businesses and people follow up on this.

However, Aqua Vegetables founder Jeremy Rich has used his engineering and farming background to create a business that's ready for the future.

Growing up on a farm, he noticed that the current model of agricultural farming needs to adapt to keep up with increasing demand and harsher climates.

So he started Aqua Vegetables - a company that uses hydroponic indoor farming to grow and sell leafy greens to restaurants. However, they are also adapting their technology to make it available on a consumer and commercial level.
