USA: Las Vegas Gains Indoor Farms

When people think of Las Vegas, they often picture the Strip, the desert and casinos. But a new Southern Nevada business called Indoor Farms of America has something in mind. For the past 18 months, the company has been developing its technology and has patents pending on a vertical, aeroponic growing device. The idea germinated from company co-founder Ron Evans who was asked to help design an aquaponic system in Haiti for an orphanage destroyed in the 2010 earthquake. Indoor Farms of America has two models; one houses plants in a semi-trailer or other truck, and the other houses plants in a building up to 100,000 sq. ft. Co-founder David Martin says he can envision casinos having their own indoor farms one day where kitchen staff walk into a trailer to retrieve the vegetables or fruits they need. “We’re at the tip of the iceberg for this whole thing,” he says.
