Nutrition and Agriculture Education

Our engaging and interactive education and training modules allow youth of all ages to learn nutrition and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture, and Math) while experiencing the joy of growing vegetables, tasting nature, and connecting with the environment.

By focusing on career readiness in sustainable agriculture, BMoreAg Foundation students have access to the growing opportunities in research and business. We are dedicated to creating pathways and preparing youth for industries that offer career advancement and sustainable wages.

Revitalization and Economic Development

Our work at BMoreAg Foundation yields multiple economic and social benefits to the city of Baltimore’s communities.

Even beyond the direct impact on food accessibility, nutrition, and STEAM education, our work supports economic, business, and career development opportunities in neighborhoods that have been historically disadvantaged.

BMoreAg Foundation was instrumental in the establishment of Baltimore’s first operating indoor vertical aeroponics farm – Alluvion Aeroponics. Alluvion Aeroponics provides a variety of high-quality produce at peak freshness to local communities. You can find Alluvion Aeroponics’ produce at local grocery stores and farmers markets – that is, if it hasn’t already sold out!

Green Sustainability

Researchers believe we must double our global food production to keep up with the world’s growing population.

Traditional agriculture alone cannot sustain this growth. However, we can support this population increase by supplementing traditional agriculture with controlled environment agriculture (CEA) – such as vertical farms, hydroponics, and aeroponics.

What benefits does controlled environment agriculture (CEA) have? CEA practices:

What benefits does controlled environment agriculture (CEA) have? CEA practices:

  • Protect crops from weather, pests, diseases, and natural events. No need to worry about wildfires, tornados, drought, and flooding.
  • Require a smaller growing footprint than traditional agriculture farms. In just a 2,800 sq. ft. greenhouse, vertical farmers can sustainably grow 4,230 heads of lettuce every 6-8 weeks.
  • Reduce transportation milage. Produce is grown locally, reducing transportation issues and emissions.
  • Can be grown year-round. Freezing temperatures aren’t an issue!
  • Create less food and water waste. An average of 80-99% less water is used compared to traditional agriculture practices.
  • Are pesticide-free and chemical-free. No fertilizer runoff into waterways. Ah, who doesn’t love clean food?

Why controlled environment agriculture? Well, why not?
