Gary Lazarski of MightyVine Tomatoes drops by Local Foods to talk about sustainability, the importance of nutrition, and growing hydroponic tomatoes.

Gary explains that industry success is predicated on growing crops in sunny, temperate places and relying on cheap gasoline costs in America to offset the costs of transporting produce across the country to restaurants and grocery stores. Tomatoes don’t ship well, though, so this current system sacrifices flavor in addition to the troubling environmental impact of transporting the produce long distances. MightyVine has found a solution that’s wowed consumers and industry professionals alike. Watch the interview to learn more about MightyVine’s mission.
