Jack’s Solar Garden is a family owned social enterprise doing more with our family farm for the betterment of our community. Through our partnerships with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Colorado State University, and the University of Arizona, Jack’s Solar Garden will put valuable research into the public sphere on co-locating solar panels with agriculture – called agrivoltaics. Partnering with Sprout City Farms will enable Jack’s Solar Garden to begin cultivating crops to put back into our community while training young farmers on agrivoltaic techniques.
As the first, but not last, of our kind, Jack’s Solar Garden will educate the next generation through regular school tours under our solar panels. Farmers, government officials, and the public will be invited to tour our premises to help disseminate the possibilities agrivoltaics offers to our society.
With the innovativeness and openness we offer, we hope to inspire our community to support local farmers as they embark on creative paths to better our community with locally produced foods and solar power.
