Rebecca's story

I am a young Puerto Rican entrepreneur focusing on agricultural innovation. In Spain, where I lived for 7 years, I co-founded a techno-agricultural company specializing in hydroponics, viticulture, and agricultural machinery. After several years introducing new products in the agricultural sector to global markets, I decided to develop a larger project, my own project, Block Farms. With Block Farms, we have proven that you can produce local food in a sustainable way in less space 365 days without weather concerns! In 2016, we manufactured the first Block Farms in Spain, but after having experienced both hurricane Irma and Maria, I decided it was time to implement Block Farms in Puerto Rico. Block Farms is a solution against the agricultural devastation of a natural disaster. I believe innovation in agriculture is one of the most important and necessary investment for humanity. Because there is a growing population that will live in cities and we need to fing a solution to feed everyone in a healthy and sustainable way. My passion is to promote urban and indoor farming which provides the most efficient food resource with minimal impact on the environment. Also I believe we have to create new methods of agriculture that produce food with quality and maximum efficiency. We need to find excellence in agriculture.
