Lynchburg Grows

I had the opportunity the other day to visit a pretty amazing non profit operation in Lynchburg Virginia. Several years ago Lynchburg Grows took over 9 historic green houses from the city of Lynchburg. The green houses which were once used to grow roses for almost a century were transformed into organic vegetable beds. The urban farm now provides food to the city schools along with education opportunities for youth.

Its a pretty impressive operation already but with plans to establish a fruit orchard and an aquaponics system with tilapia it should be an even more amazing place. For the whole story check them out.
