People in New York will be able to look through a large window in the indoor farm to view a crop of fresh tomatoes being grown continuously during the next six months under precise LED lighting and other controlled conditions. The first tomatoes grown will be ready for harvesting and consumption by late-March.

The grow module was set up to demonstrate how indoor farming can benefit the world through growing fresh, nutritious, and pesticide-free food near populations, anywhere in the world by using fewer natural resources. For the Guggenheim exhibition, 80 Acres Farms, Infinite Acres, and Priva have collaborated on the 700 square foot grow center and all of the state-of-the art ag-technology within it. The Infinite Acres grow module is expected to grow 50,000 tomatoes during the exhibition.
