AgriSolar Podcast Ep. 1: Growing Crops Among the Solar Panels in Colorado

Episode 280: Growing Crops Among the Solar Panels in Colorado

In this episode of Voices from the Field, Stacie Peterson, the Energy Program Director of the National Center for Appropriate Technology, talks with Meg Caley, the Executive Director and co-founder of the Colorado nonprofit Sprout City Farms.

Sprout City Farms began in 2010 with a vision of increasing food access and community resiliency through farming underutilized urban land. Among its partnerships, Sprout City Farms works with Jack’s Solar Garden in Longmont, Colorado, growing crops in the spaces between solar panels at the site, which is the largest agrivolatic research facility of its kind in the United States.
