It’s with deep sadness that First Light Project has lost it’s Co-Managing Director, Frank Sherman.
Frank Sherman was an integral part of First Light Project’s indoor hydroponic vertical farm. His commitment to improving healthy eating by providing nutrient dense leafy greens through donations to Philabundance, our host, to sustainability and environmental justice.
Frank was the founding Principal of Ecotone Design LLC. Frank is a registered architect, recognized sustainability expert, social impact entrepreneur, and an adjunct professor at Jefferson University. He has over 30 years’ experience as a practicing architect, green building expert and sustainability consultant.
He will be missed, but his legacy will go on with the First Light Project Indoor Hydroponic Vertical Farming Programming.
