CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A company that started at the University of Virginia is hoping to expand its impact.
“Self-contained vertical farms use hydroponics to grow plants with 90% less water. There are no pesticides or chemicals. We can grow plants 2-3 times more quickly,” Babylon Micro-Farms CEO Alexander Olesen said.
The planting of the farms is mostly done by designated operators assigned by Babylon, but they often get students involved.
