Seeds of Change

Our recipe of growing greens is simple: light, water, air, human care

Our hope is to make indoor farming more sustainable, accessible, and repeatable so that it can be a resource for communities across the country. Where fresh, delicious, local greens are good for you and the place you call home.

The indoor farming industry is very much new and growing, and we’re excited to be leading the way in the Pacific Northwest—an area so perfectly beautiful that it deserves every effort of protection.

Friends finding inspiration and putting their spin on it

Ken Kaneko founded Forward Greens in 2018 with co-founder – and best friend from high school – Will Tabajonda. It was on a business trip to Japan that Ken was first introduced to vertical farming. Intrigued by the idea, they combined their engineering backgrounds to make indoor farming more about the food and growing it sustainably.

Flash forward to the outcome – a place where the people are not only passionate about the environment but also open to trying new things and championing new ideas around foods and how they’re made!

We’re committed to growing greens year-round for our local communities and hope to play a role in moving the industry forward!
