Turley will help company expand its reach into new sectors, and elevate awareness of Grow Pod’s tools and technologies that improve quality of life.
Grow Pod Solutions, developer of the world’s most advanced automated hydroponic farms for
commercial and home use, announced that NFL legend, Kyle Turley, has joined the company’s
advisory board. Turley played with the New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams, and Kansas City
Chiefs, and was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2000.
Turley has been active in helping former NFL players and combat veterans reduce opiate
addictions and improve their quality of life. He is an advocate for education about head trauma,
and testified before congress in 2010, giving his account of the impact of concussions on his life.
Turley was featured in the documentary United States of Football examining issues of
neurological health in the NFL and youth league football, and has been involved with efforts to
assist youth sports programs in head trauma prevention.
Turley sits on the Board of Directors of Gridiron Greats, a non-profit organization providing
medical, housing and financial assistance to retired NFL players in dire need. In addition to
Turley, the organization’s board includes Hall of Fame players and Super Bowl coaches.
“I am proud to have Kyle join our Advisory Board as we continue to build a world-class
organization that is capable of disrupting the medical and agricultural industries in order to
provide better access to healthy foods and natural medicines, and improve quality of life
worldwide,” said George Natzic, President of Grow Pod Solutions.
“I look forward to working with the team at Grow Pod Solutions, and helping them extend their
reach into sectors I deeply care about,” Turley said. “Their tools and technologies can empower
people, communities and organizations, by enabling them to grow their own healthy foods and
medicines, and dramatically improve lives.”
