Greenhouse campus a game changer for SC farming

"I have called it the Boeing of agriculture. Not just because it’s big, but because it can be a catalyst for other agribusiness growth in the Palmetto State. When Boeing selected North Charleston in 2009, other businesses began converging on the state from across the world, helping create a local supply chain for the aerospace giant. The ATC can have the same impact for farming." - Hugh E. Weathers
