LEAF NO COMMUNITY BEHIND!
Harvest Today provides a simple, yet highly engineered solution to indoor growing which empowers communities and families to grow food locally, and harvest crops right off the stem. The Harvest Wall is designed to grow crops using 98% less land, 97% less-water and zero pesticides/herbicides.
We aim to empower communities of all sizes to address food insecurity at the source. Through that work, we aim to impact the world positively by providing the ability to eat fresh food every day from their home, their community, and in large spaces where the Harvest Wall (pictured below) is installed.
The Harvest Wall is produced to enable people to grow leafy greens and vegetables in any environment. It allows plants to grow with much less water and no usage of chemicals and pesticides. Easy growing for farmers and non-farmers is possible with the Harvest Wall.
Success To Date
The initial days were focused on perfecting the prototype of The Harvest Wall. Building on great growing results from the first 3D models, we have since:
- Completed the engineering phase in Solidworks in March 2021.

- We were included in the “Final 10” for Nestle’s Global Food Sustainability competition. We were selected out of 2000+ entries.
- One of the first companies to install a vertical growing system in a Canadian Federal Penitentiary.
- Patent issued in May 2023 (Patent No.: US 11,647,708 B2).
Food security, food quality, food spoilage, food miles, food independence and more are all issues surrounding how food is produced and distributed globally.
The environmental challenges of a changing climate make the current food production cycle fragile at best. Whether decades long droughts, massive flooding, more powerful storms in all hemispheres, harsh freezes and heat waves out of season, hail, tornadoes and much more threaten the current monocrop devices set up post WWII. Added to this, new disease profiles and pest infestations make field grown produce on a large scale riskier each season.
As human beings, we must address these issues in a scalable way, empowering individuals and corporations of all sizes to join in the journey of providing better food. As our population grows to over 10 billion in only 30 years, we must grow more food in creative ways, without excessive waste, immune from climate changes all whilst respecting the impact we have on this fragile environment.
THE SIMPLE SOLUTION TO INDOOR GROWING
Growing food smarter is our focus. The Harvest Wall is scalable, inviting a farmer to build into a lifestyle of serving their community in a way that is sustainable. The Harvest Wall grows food using a unique blend of medium (Coco Coir +?) and a vertical fertigation solution to allow plants to develop a true microbiome. This blend of growing techniques led us to our first patent being issued in May 2023 (Patent No.: US 11,647,708 B2).

Harvest Today serves the world through comprehensive solutions to growing under greenhouse or fully indoors. With off-grid solutions in the pipeline, we can empower the most remote communities to grow food year round. Larger population centers are able to take advantage of our holistic designs to make massive production capacities. By putting indoor technology closer to the table, we mitigate the risk of spoilage and consumption variants.
Lastly, our contribution to the fledgling agricultural revolution is to bring practical solutions to the table of increasingly complex competitor solutions. The ease of use and scale of growing 1500lbs of food in 12 square feet annually set us apart as a leader in cubic foot growing technology. Automations and digital investments are options, not necessities to operating the products Harvest Today brings to market.
Harvest Today is a manufacturing company. Our engineering team has skilfully developed the assembly known as the Harvest Wall. We believe this scalable growing system is like none other.
We do business through distributor partners, and direct to growers. Whether that grower is in the home, office, school, correctional facility, large scale greenhouse or indoor farm. As we scale, our goal is to foster and manage more distributor relationships and direct consumer relationships.
The worldwide AgTech market was valued at $18.12 billion in 2021, and the market is projected to reach $43.37 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.2%. We believe Harvest Today is positioned to be a key player in the growing equipment sector of this market.
Furthermore, there are an estimated 2,300 Controlled Environment Agricultural facilities in the United States as of 2021. Controlled Environment Agriculture Market size was USD 74.4 Billion in 2022, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.13% and is predicted to reach a valuation of USD 377.6 Billion by 2032.

Jill has a PhD in Plant Ecophysiology from the University of Calgary demonstrating the effects of sulfur dioxide air pollution on plant photosynthesis and mycorrhizal interactions. As the Rhizosphere Ecologist at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Lethbridge Research Centre for 16 years, she initiated research on how to create and manage healthy soils with specific cropping sequences, and cover- and companion- crops using no-tillage. This research had a strong focus on the effects of soil management and cropping practices on soil biota with an emphasis on earthworms and soil microarthropods (mites).
As the market for individual consulting grew- Jill founded Earthspirit Land Resource Consulting, and then Rhizoterra Inc (a USA based company). Jill served as a Board Member for the Pacific Northwest Direct Seed Association for 5 years and helped develop and coordinate the Farmed Smart Program that certifies farms as Sustainable and Regenerative. R&D projects with vertical farms led her to grow, process, and manufacture whole-plant “green shot” human supplements with the understanding that all the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and secondary plant metabolites work together to facilitate health. Separating out so-called “active ingredients” means we can easily lose most of the whole plant benefits.
