I am a consultant for a Real Estate Management company PRIMCO (PMCM).

We are currently compiling a business plan to own and manage Urban Cubic

Vertical Indoor Farming Facilities in the USA.

We are very impressed by your years of enthusiastic commitment to the Green Movement and your great work as a journalist.

Reducing carbon footprint, eliminating pesticide use and disease is are of primary concern for our production model.

The reason I am contacting you is to ask if you would be interested in participating as a member

of the Board of Directors not only in consulting for the business itself but also for potential charitable 

endeavors. It would not require a large time commitment and we are prepared to discuss an equity 

position for your participation. The Board will include other like minded academic and other

Green minded participants.

We look forward to receiving your response.

Sincerely,

Anton K. Zachary
