The Horticulture Innovation Lab awarded a $2,000 (USD) Trellis Fund grant to Growing Star Agri Ventures.  

Growing Star Agri Ventures will lead a project in Kenya that will extend Irish potato production information via mobile technologies, training meetings and demonstrations.  

As part of the Trellis Fund process, Growing Star Agri Ventures will also work with a U.S. graduate student, selected to provide additional agricultural expertise to achieve the project goals.
