A Talk With Viraj Puri 

CEO, Gotham Greens


Wakefield's Electric Locomotive series kicks off with a most extraordinary guest. Viraj Puri, is the founder and CEO of Gotham Greens, the country's first commercial scale hydroponic urban farm. The farm itself is a technological marvel, with sensors, widgets and whats-its helping to yield the most delicious greens you've ever seen — all the while using fewer resources and creating less waste than we would dream was even possible. It's produce that out-locals "local", is stocked in Whole Foods and is served by some of the top chefs in this fair city.

Join us for an hour and half of stories (oh, there are stories!) on just how this magical farm on top of an old bowling alley in North Brooklyn came to be. Viraj is a TED Fellow, Wild Gift recipient, and is recognized as a leading expert in sustainable urban agriculture. In addition to Gotham Greens, he has built startups in faraway lands like Malawi, Africa and Ladakh, India.

We can promise stories, laughs and….treats! The wonderful folks at Ovenly will provide treats for all.

So join us. Get on board.
