Our mission and vision for the future
Our mission is to help save our planet and to provide a sustainable solution to the growing food insecurity we’re faced with.
Where The AEVA Came From
The idea of the AEVA was born out of crossing sustainability interests and professional experience in industrial agriculture and indoor urban agriculture from both our founders.
Throughout their academic and professional careers, they have seen the need for fresh healthy food and its importance in both communities and on a global scale.
From there, the idea of creating the AEVA, an aesthetically pleasing and productive vertical farming system, was born.

Conner, co-founder, has worked around the globe on sustainability challenges in both the business and legal worlds. He has an undergraduate degree from McGill University focusing on Environment and Development as well as a Master of Science degree from the University of Toronto.
