Our tiny indoor vertical farm went open source in June and is attempting to grow food for local food pantries as well as inspire other renegades to take action and grow healthy food for the most vulnerable in their communities. God bless you all! 🙏✌️💚

You guys are funny 🤣 sounds like people are finally coming around to showing their jealousy in this tough economy. I wondered what was taking so long. 🤔
Millions of you follow them and adore these celebrities and make them rich with every click. 🤣
But now all of the sudden there's shade? Where have you been 10 years ago, these people have been flying around for years. Enjoy that fresh air!.🤣 They dont care about you. They are flying High! Probably literally.

Can't eat plant based jet fuel. Farming needs entire overhaul why do you think so many flash floods. Soil is degraded, atmospheric water content so extreme as rains then evaporates immediately. Stop desertification 2/3 planet consumed today, must reverse.

I believe you can use whatever vehicle you want, when you want, to go where you want. But it’s quite hypocritical to spew tons of Co2 while schooling us about climate change.
