The AAVF President Mrs. Josephine Favre Visiting New York City indoor hydroponic farm FarmLab
Urban FarmLab where various plants are grown by using #VerticalFarming methods known as #Hydroponics in shelves using very little space. Dozens of rare plant varieties, most of which are never available fresh in New York City or other big cities.
Josephine Favre is learning the science on how plants thrive in completely-controlled conditions, experiencing new flavors, and discovering new ways of thinking about culinary and medicinal plants.
The only way to share knowledge is to first learn the different Agriculture methods used in other continents.
Josephine spends 10% of her time traveling the world learning new #Agriculture #Science & #Technology methods used outside of Africa in order to contribute in Africa’s food insecurities this, by promoting and facilitating Vertical Farming solutions in Africa for socio-economic and sustainable development.

#MyMoringa discussion in New York City! #verticalfarming #aavf #Foodscience #agriculture The 🌱 Training at FarmLab was excellent. I learned so much and my plant vocabulary became bigger! Thanking 🌱Joseph (JC) Chidiac, MSc🌿 for introducing me to Henry Gordon-Smith who then introduced me to FarmLab. Indeed, the Vertical Farming Family worldwide really is precious!
Veronica Shangali, Remember our Moringa discussion with AAVF South Africa? Well, I managed to pull out the whole Moringa discussion in the Lab, this is because they had a Bonsei Moringa. I told them, we grow hectares of those in Africa! With bigger leaves. They were like 😳 The healing & healthy benefits of the Moringa plant are dozens. Thus, knowledge exchange was very helpful with FarmLab.
Can’t get enough of Food & Plant Science.
More? look at the Science & Technology week. Knowledgeable people!
