Revolutionizing the Art of Growing Food

Ascending Harvest | Feeding the World

Ascending Harvest is revolutionizing the way families grow their own food.  Our Human Powered Hydroponics ™ systems offer an option far better than depending on charitable support, if and when it exists.

Our technology can produce an actual return on investment in the African economy, growing hundreds of pounds of food for roughly $40-50 US dollars.

Our research has developed over several years, but in 2018, we are confident that our technology and passion for helping others can help millions of families escape the cycle of poverty and poor nutrition by giving them their own food supply.


We are dedicated to providing inexpensive, durable, and easy-to-use farming systems for those who need them most. We’re passionate about leveraging our collective farming, engineering, and business expertise to ease the suffering of people around the world, by helping them live healthier and happier lives.

In many countries, families struggle with basic nutrition where maintaining a garden or small farm is impossible because of poor soil, or limited availability of water and nutrients.

Traditional hydroponic systems often won’t work because of the pricetag, or they require expertise to operate, and electricity isn’t available everywhere.

It is also nearly impossible to provide people in the neediest communities with quality solutions due to the challenges of getting systems to them. Many goods are stolen before ever reaching their intended destination.

In worst cases, girls and women are forced to sell their bodies to put food on the table for themselves and their families.
