U.S. Farms

This renovated former Willard Elementary School, was purchased in April, 2021 after the school was closed in 2018 and consolidated into the nearby West Perry Elementary School.  The building and its 3.7 acres is repurposed and revitalized into Busy Vertical Farm; a state-of-the-art Ag-tech plant propagation facility.

urban-gro brings extensive experience in controlled environment agriculture and will ensure that the project’s components and design meet the highest standards.  This includes 2nd generation LED lighting systems, room specific ventilation and specific racking to allow for optionality in the propagation produced while focusing on optimal plant performance and efficiency.
“By partnering with urban-gro, we are bringing the best talent into our project to ensure great execution and high-value outcomes for stakeholders.  Repurposing a former school provides a great footprint for a vertical farm while also creating a positive outcome for the local community and region. The Busy Vertical Farm will be a huge step in creating a domestic, sustainable supply chain for the accelerating U.S. greenhouse industry by providing locally grown seedlings and will build on the growing Ag-tech momentum in the region.”

Thomas Sauve, Chief Development Officer of Land Betterment
