Mike Jackson, founder of Kentucky Greens in Louisville, Kentucky, is growing hydroponic micro-greens, lettuce, and other produce and tackling a huge problem – the lack of fresh, nutritious food in corner stores.

Many low-income families rely on these convenient stores for cheap food, but often can’t find fresh food or anything besides canned or heavily processed food items.

To combat this, Mike is working with several non-profits to provide consumers with healthier choices and better food and agriculture education.
