April Mixer

Join us for our April Mixer as we welcome Travis Parman, Chief Communications Officer at AppHarvest. Travis will share a bit about his professional journey and discuss some of the technology, sustainability and educational initiatives at AppHarvest.

For example, did you know:

  • AppHarvest’s 60-acre greenhouse (the largest in the country!) uses 100% recycled rainwater for its irrigation system and 50 beehives to pollinate their 700,000+ tomato plants.
  • Robotic harvesters have collected the world’s largest data set of tomato images and can identify more than 50 varieties of tomatoes across varying stages of maturity.
  • Shipping containers at high schools in Pike and Rowan Counties have been converted into “hydroponic learning laboratories” that provide local sources of fresh food for those in need.

Come for the professional development; stay for the networking with fellow creatives and refreshments provided by Nourished Folks and Old North Bar.

As usual, the first round is on us! We’ll see you there.
