Ivy Tech Community College and Green Sense Farms have entered into a partnership to build a 20,000-square-foot vertical farm on land transferred by the college to the Portage-based grower on Sample Street in South Bend.
The facility will be a working commercial farm but will also provide a hands on training centre for the college, giving students an all round practical knowledge of the business.
This collaboration will hopefully lead the way for more educational facilities to recognise the importance of teaching students modern farming techniques as well as business management to go forward and develop sucessful companies in the future.
