A former Wall Street executive, Jack Griffin is the founder or the world’s first vertical farming school and the architect behind the ultra-efficient “Revolution Technology” that powers Metropolis farms. Jack’s technology enables Metropolis Farms to grow the yearly production of an acre from only 36 sq. feet. In addition to being the first indoor vertical farm in Philadelphia, Metropolis Farms is the first vegan-certified farm in the nation. The technology uses 98% less water, 75% less energy, and works without the need for pesticides, herbicides or manure. Through its’ innovative private and public partnerships, Metropolis is transforming Philadelphia into the world’s first vertical farming city, building over ten 100+ acre capacity flash farms in Philadelphia over the next two years.
