The indoor hydroponic farm is scheduled to open later this year. The Larry Ellison partnership will be able to grow and sell vegetables for cheaper than produce thats imported. Last August Ellison announced the Sensei project on Lanai. Sensei would use automated computer hydroponic farming in large greenhouses.
Also set to reopen later this year is the Four Seasons Resort Lanai, The Lodge at Koele. The property closed in January 2015 in order for extensive renovations to be done totaling approximately $75 million. A new spa and fitness center are among the new amenities the lodge will provide.
Lani is the first Sensei farm for the Los Angeles based company. The first crops will include Black Trifle tomatoes, and Komatsuna mustard greens. We look forward to viewing the completed project!
