Who Should Join?
Our goal is to bring together multiple stakeholders who have a common interest in the growth and development of the indoor agriculture industry.
Our members include growers of all types; i.e., those who grow lettuces, herbs, tomatoes, mushrooms, and other crops indoors. Our members also include suppliers and service companies that enable farmers, as well as investors who are fueling the growth of the industry.
