Tight 5 sustainably grows microgreens, sprouts, and culinary herbs at production scale in an ultra-minimalist hydroponic vertical farming unit. Infinitely scaleable and ethically sustainable, every part of their production process is streamlined for minimal ecological impact. They also can make same day fresh deliveries without a drop of gasoline. How? On their tricycle of course!
