Yesterday a friend brought us a bag of sunflower micro greens from a 2.75 acre farm within the city limits of Columbia, South Carolina called City Roots. I had never heard of it before but it looks incredible– In addition to intensive production of fruit and vegetables they have bees for honey and pollination, chickens for eggs and enriching the soil and an aquaponic system which produces tilapia and hydroponically grown vegetables. Inspirational!
