@ CHESTER, PA – Home of the Clippers!
Think and Grow Solutions has partnered with the Chester Upland School District in Chester, PA. We’ve recycled unused space in Chester High School, and the PA Department of Agriculture has invested $100K seed capital that we’ve used to build a small batch manufacturing space. We’re committed to providing STEAM experiences for CUSD’s K12 students and we ultimately want to seed youth entrepreneurship in sustainability industries (food, energy, water and waste management).
Starting in September 2022, our Chester facility will grow and sell hand- crafted essential oils, freeze dried and dehydrated fruits and powered nutraceuticals.
@ PHILADELPHIA, PA – Vaux Community Center in Sharswood
TGS, through our nonprofit Creative Tech Works, leads the NextGen Prosperity: Urban Leadership, Sustainability & Entrepreneurship (NPULSE) Alliance, implementing a historic $1.1M award from the EDA. North Philly residents in zip codes 19121 and 19122 will receive expert-led STEAM workshops in controlled indoor agriculture, engineering design, product R&D, light manufacturing and food entrepreneurship. The NPULSE Alliance includes The National Institute for Inclusive Competitiveness, Cheyney University’s Aquaponic Research & Education Lab, TJU’s Kanbar School of Design and Engineering, and VIA-Consulting‘s nonprofit Global Education and Empowerment Fund. Many thanks to the Southern Region Education Board for administering this historic award for urban ag in North Philly!
@ Millville, NJ – Shipping Container Farms for Plant Starts
TGS owns and manages two 40′ shipping container farms capable of producing 1,000 pounds of food per month. We are collaborating with Anagi Farms and the Royal Dynastic Organics Farm, and providing seed starts in controlled environments for 20 greenhouses in southern New Jersey.
We’re also partnering with Farm to Flame, Inc., to test a bio-generator engineered to produce off-grid energy using pelletized agricultural waste. Ideally, Think and Grow Farms will be off grid within one year, and using alternative energy as part of our commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency.
