Event Recap

Newlab solves the world’s biggest challenges by bringing together top entrepreneurs, engineers, and inventors with leaders and experts across industries and cities. Our Transformative Technology Applied series explores how Newlab member companies create solutions for pressing problems in public health, the environment, truth in media, our cities, infrastructure, and more. 

Join Founder and CEO of Farmshelf, Andrew Shearer, as he shares the company’s journey—from providing accessible ways for restaurants and cafes to grow their own produce, to the recent launch of Farmshelf Home. In addition to a Q&A from the audience, Andrew will also demonstrate how to pull together a fresh dish straight from their Farmshelf units.

Committed to rescuing and delivering food for 2.5 million New Yorkers before the COVID-19 crisis, the organization is expanding its services to thousands more as the pandemic’s economic impact becomes a reality.


About Farmshelf

Most food travels over 1,500 miles from farm to plate. Locally grown food is better for our health, the environment, and the food itself. Farmshelf makes it easy to grow produce where you live, work and eat. Their smart indoor farms automate the hardest parts of growing by creating the perfect ecosystem for plants to thrive.
