Vertical Gardening in the Urban Environment

Most urban centers across the United States have been labeled as “food deserts” where city residents do not have access to local, fresh produce. Food is transported to city centers by the truckloads from tens and even thousands of miles away. Oftentimes, these materials arrive close to or past their expiration and the condition of the food is questionable. As a result, city residents, which account for 81% of the US population, are provided with low quality produce.
