Imagine a world where on the outskirts of every city, you could visit your local farm(s). It would be a farm that grows several healthy fruits and vegetables and only serves its local community. We could vastly reduce the need of cross-country or international transportation that costs money, shelf life (time) and pollutes our earth with truck emissions. I'm not suggesting that all products can necessarily be grown locally and still be viable economically, but the basics like lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and herbs can. With today's technology, it's possible... and we're doing it. 

My name is Pierre Sleiman and I am the founder of Go Green Agriculture. Since I was a young child, I have had a dream about integrating technology with agriculture to find better and healthier ways to grow food. My overall goal is accelerate the movement towards decentralizing agricultural production and distribution of safe and healthy fruits and vegetables in the United States and later other countries. I believe that my role is to further integrate information systems technology with greenhouse automation and hydroponics to develop an effective system that will allow farming to be integrated into urban living and therefore create a more sustainable, local and safer food supply.  


Go Green Agriculture was founded in Pierre Jr's college dorm room. During one of Pierre Jr's Computer Science degree courses at UC Riverside, he was inspired by the concept of decentralization. Taking out his first credit card for $2,000, he began constructing a growing system and writing a business plan. Upon graduation, Pierre Jr. asked his father, Pierre Sr., to join his vision and become his partner. Today Go Green employs Mom, Dad and Sister. The rest is history...

We employ the latest in water conservation technology, greenhouse design and organic growing methods. One hundred percent of our irrigation water is recaptured and reused - reducing water usage up to 80%! We use 1/3 of the land that is normally needed to grow.

We have a vision - to grow organic food locally and ultra sustainably in every city in the U.S. Our young CEO, Pierre Sleiman, 28, has been recognized at the White House by President Obama as a "Champion of Change" in "The Future of Agriculture" for his work. We work with our community, customers and policy makers everyday to continue to realize our mission.




Go Green Agriculture is a family farm with big ideas and strong values for growing the healthiest and highest quality produce while using super sustainable growing methods. All of our produce is grown with utmost care and the finest nutrients in the world - the result... the freshest finest produce!
