Oct. 31, 2012, Vancouver — Vertical Designs Ltd. has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Advanced Vertical Farming in Alberta to construct a fully automated, indoor vertical farming facility in that province.

Products will include a series of top quality, pesticide-free fruits and vegetables that can be grown and harvested year round without any threat of seasonal changes or extreme weather challenges.

“Alberta is a province rich in innovation and prosperous business practices,” says Advanced Vertical Farming CEO Greg Dennison.

“It's exciting to imagine the quality produce we'll be able to grow and sell despite what the weather is doing outside. We effectively eliminate all of the environmental risks of traditional farming.”

With deals in Ontario and Alberta, Vertical Designs “has become a national leader in the vertical farming movement,” adds CEO Nick Brusatore.

“We look forward to supporting our current licensees and contributing to this amazing new brand of specialized farming on a global level.”

Advanced Vertical Farming Ltd. is currently seeking funding and is interested in a capital partner. Interested parties can contact Dennison at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Brusatore is an innovative eco-entrepreneur, natural capitalist, mechanical designer and inventor.

He has led discussions on the benefits of vertical farm production facilities and energy saving technologies in a number of seminars, including Vancouver, Haiti, New York, along with various colleges and universities.

Vertical Designs Ltd. is headquartered in Vancouver.
