Evergreen Farm Oy will provide the farming units, training, and mentoring free of charge, since Ali Amirlatifi believes in the enormous educational value this hands-on experience has for students particularly in fields of automation, robotics, computer science, electrical engineering, space technology, material science, manufacturing, chemistry, biology, water management, marketing, communication, and business.
This farming facility will perform research, as well as, produce food and industrial crops (biofuels and bioplastics), yielding up to 12,960 crops per harvest. The students’ objective is that the revenue from food production can be used to fund further technological development in indoor farming, biorefineries, manufacturing, and the space adaptation of such technologies.
Evergreen Farm is in negotiation with Urban Mill, Aalto University (ACRE), and City of Espoo,
Finland to obtain the premises for the indoor farm, which could be the pre-existing underground tunnel or any other available facilities in the Espoo Innovation Garden ecosystem in the heart of Aalto university campus.
