This tour will be an informative trip to the farm to show guests what goes into bringing hydroponic greens from “farm” to fork. Starting in the seeding room through product distribution, tour guides will offer an inside look as to how Local Bounti’s line of hydroponic lettuces are grown from seedlings to greens that are ready for consumption. Guests will also learn about the difference between growing in gutters vs. pools. Last but not least, Local Bounti guides will also explain the different processes put into place to reduce our impact on the environment while maximizing our sustainability efforts. Enjoy the tour!
