Food Ladder a not-for-profit, social enterprise promotes innovative solutions to food insecurity in the form of localised, solar-powered hydroponic greenhouses.
Kelly McJannett, CEO of Food Ladder, says what can be grown in remote communities, should be, and local food production systems need to be considered essential infrastructure in these areas.
