Reasons abound for eating locally grown produce. But detractors say agriculture isn’t financially viable on a community level, particularly in challenging climates. Green Winter Farms of Palmer, Alaska proves otherwise. The indoor farm now sells pre-packed fresh basil to Carr-Safeway grocery stores, farmer’s market patrons and local restaurants.

In conversation with Ball Publishing Editor Chris Beytes, Green Winter Farms CEO Crystal Boze reveals challenges faced and overcome in getting her farm up and growing. Her achievement is the result of smart decisions about every aspect of her farm, from designing a controlled environment to selecting the right mix of crops, nutrients and equipment. This webcast dives into the details for growers looking to improve profitability.
