Robert Colangelo's vertical indoor gardening company Green Sense Farms, Portage, uses 24 foot hydroponic tubs to grow pesticide and GMO free produce year-round.
Robert Colangelo's vertical indoor gardening company Green Sense Farms, Portage, uses 24 foot hydroponic tubs to grow pesticide and GMO free produce year-round. Robert Colangelo has brought futuristic farming to Northwest Indiana through vertical indoor gardening that uses less of everything to produce more. He's the founding farmer and majority shareholder of Green Sense Farms, which supplies leafy greens, microgreens, baby greens, herbs and lettuces to stores and restaurants in Northwest Indiana and Chicago. "We have towers that go to 24 foot with hydroponic tubs where we grow produce year round and it's pesticide and GMO free," says Colangelo. The system of hydroponics allows the plants to thrive through the root system without using soil. It results in a much higher density of crop, as artificial lighting can provide light for more hours of the day. The weather and insects become a non-issue and the possibility of contamination through run-off from fertilizer is eliminated. The crops are sold locally to minimize transportation costs. "The goal is to recycle and have zero waste," says Colangelo. "Our goal is to build a brand that is nationally known and locally grown," says Colangelo. The company is now expanding and building a network of farms in the U.S. and Canada, as well as Scandinavia and Asia Pacific. "Personally, I feel that water is going to be the issue of the decade," he says. "We're going to come to some critical choices-for industry, drinking or agriculture. I feel our water conservation processes make us the modern farm for the future." It was in 2013 that Green Sense Farms began, but long before that, Colangelo was thinking green. For the past eight years he has hosted a nationally syndicated radio show that is available on 37 stations, including Lakeshore Public Radio and WBBM Chicago.
