AeroBuddies is 702’s 2017 Small Business Awards winner.

Urban Organics came out tops at this year’s CapeTalk Small Business Awards.

AeroBuddies is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) “education enrichment company”.

Urban Organics designs and develops hydroponics and aquaponics for urban and rural communities and offers workshops on how these systems can be used for fresh produce.
