An awards ceremony is scheduled for June 25 at the United FreshTec/FreshMKT shows in Chicago, according to a news release.

Harwood co-founded AeroFarms, which has received accolades from numerous organizations for innovation, sustainability and technology. He has more than 40 years of experience in agriculture, and has several patents relating to indoor agriculture, according to the release.
