Shaar Tzion Elementary and Middle School
Located in Neve Yakov, the Shaar Tzion School services socio-economically challenged at-risk students. The Minahelet is excited about the opportunity to provide a hands-on environment for the students to learn about sustainable entrepreneurship while benefitting from the nutritious vegetable output. Having already provided a successful seeding and sprouting program, StartUpRoots is developing its first vertical indoor hydroponic farm. Concluding successful testing with state-of-the-art lighting, StartUpRoots is seeking an additional 10,000 nis in funding to furnish the school with this low-voltage energy saving specific spectrum grow lighting.
