Sustainability, Farm-to-Table and Urban Farming
Vertical Gardening

In urban areas, finding sufficient green space to have a garden, particularly for a space like a restaurant, is incredibly difficult. Green roofs and roof gardens are one fix to that problem, as is vertical gardening. There are large edible vertical gardens throughout the country, such as at Atlanta’s Botanical Garden. The Botanical Garden’s vertical farm is notable not only for its scale, but also because it is growing produce on those walls as part of its efforts to raise awareness of the farm-to-table movement.

Tournesol Siteworks’ profile of the Atlanta garden led me to their main website, which features all of the technologies required for a green roof, roof garden, or even vertical/wall garden.
