This past weekend we delivered our produce to the first two residents who are now living in Whisper Valley!
Whisper Valley, located right outside of Austin, is a collaborative project between Taurus, Lettuce and other investors who are carving out a new type of community that will be a thriving model of sustainable living. With net zero energy capable homes and amenities, Whisper Valley is already on track to be one of the largest eco-developments in The United States.
Lettuce is helping mold the land itself with high production farms that will feed its future residents. We’ve already built one Hub farm and a children’s farm, as well as models of mini-farms that are available for residents to build in their own backyards. By keeping the food local and distributing it to the immediate surrounding areas, we are building a highly efficient and dense food system to replace our current spread out, wasteful model.
We are so excited to prove that it works, we are offering a free meal bag to each new resident when they move into their new home (Because who likes cooking when they first move-in?). Residents are excited and we have heard nothing but praises so far as they are eager to participate by eating delicious food and learning more about the local food-chain with Lettuce.
