Rawl & Sons Inc., Vertical Roots and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture.

Regarding the most recent trip to South Carolina, Zapczynski said, “Vertical Roots is truly changing the game, as they say. I love the idea of repurposing shipping containers with their ability to then grow in any locations throughout the year.”
