A flourishing rooftop farm is allowing residents of an Atlanta, GA homeless shelter to grow food and develop valuable life and professional skills. Located atop a sustainable building run by the Metro Atlanta Task Force For the Homeless, the bountiful garden was planted by shelter inhabitants themselves, and yields bushels of fresh produce like kale, chard, carrots, lettuces, radishes and other healthy, homegrown foods that residents may not otherwise have access to.
