How We Work With Clients
Since 1972, Massachusetts-based non-profit My Choice Programs has supported individuals with developmental disabilities to participate in their communities. As one of its innovative programs, it decided to transform a building into a vertical farm that could feed both the residents of its homes and the local community.
They worked with our friends at Bright Agrotech to design a farm for their space using ZipFarmTM towers, and then Contain Inc. stepped in to help with farm financing. After speaking with the My Choice Programs’ team to better understand their approach, project and financing needs, Contain Inc. arranged a five-year lease at 6.5%* for their farming equipment.
The farm broke ground in May 2017, was installed in August 2017, and My Choice Programs anticipates that it will soon be producing fresh, healthy veggies.
