GreenWave is a non-profit organization of Regenerative Ocean Farmers founded in 2014 dedicated to climate resilience and equity. They envision a thriving blue green economy, built and led by regenerative ocean farmers, that feeds local communities while protecting the planet.
Their polyculture farming system grows a mix of seaweeds and shellfish that require zero inputs — making it the most sustainable form of food production on the planet — while sequestering carbon and rebuilding reef ecosystems.
Since their farms sit vertically below the surface, they produce high yields with a small footprint. With a low barrier to entry, anyone with 20 acres, a boat, and $20-50K can start their own farm.
Their goal is to train and support 10,000 farmers and other industry leaders in the next 10 years.← Back to PARTICIPANTS
