Food Advocate Profile: Britta Riley & @windowfarms

Our mission at Foodtree is to connect people with where their food comes from. With this in mind we’re highlighting individuals who work in the intersection of food & technology we think do a fantastic job of contributing, promoting, and building the global food scene on a local level. We call them Food Advocates.

This post is part of a series to highlight the people involved in an upcoming SXSW panel talk: Better Food Through Open Data Standards.

About Britta Riley and Windowfarms: Britta Riley is a designer and social entrepreneur who is the CEO and Founder of Windowfarms. They’re a company that has developed a hydroponic system that utilizes vertical window space for access to natural light, and allows for year-round growing. Imagine having your own small garden of fresh herbs right in your kitchen window, even in deepest winter. Windowfarms makes this possible.

What we love about Windowfarms: They’ve created an innovative product to overcome the limitation of a small space or access to an yard that is a major factor preventing people from growing their own food. Windowfarms understands that “growing some portion of one’s own food is a simple pleasure that can make a big difference in one’s relationship with nature.”
