Owner of EZ Gro Garden Larry K. Johnson has been an innovator in his fields of IT/engineering for years working in computers, telephone systems and Tier support. Seeing a need for a change in how we grow food in the ground he took a simple quad pot and designed an entire gardening/farming system around it, so the method of growing food becomes an above-ground managed system to increase food production while easing the environmental footprint. EzGro Garden provides many systems to allow for managed food-production systems from a porch patio garden to 1000’s of pots in tower gardens used around the world. This innovative system is fully functioning on non-arable land where normal farming would not be a workable solution. When customers of this system needed a way to power the gardens when normal power systems would not be usable. Larry , drawing on years of engineering and IT experience, segued from this amazing gardening system into designing an off-grid energy system to allow large-scale gardening to be autonomous from the power grid with his innovative TriHelix system. This coupled system utilizes wind and solar power together in a unique way. All designs and adaptations have been done with the idea of growing more food, producing cleaner energy and allowing people to be more productive. The combination of both an innovative way to grow more food using less resources coupled with the solar/wind power system to power both the garden systems, as well as home environments, creates an entire new way to remedy the issues both industries- farming and power- now face. Mr. Johnson has worked tirelessly over the past 10 years designing, researching and constantly reimaging his systems to make them better, stronger and more resourceful. At 61 , he is pushing forward to benefit future generations and the planet with amazing new ideas for power production and food production, this is his purpose and worthy of recognition.
