Orange County is aiming for going more GREEN with a new local food sourcing program called the “Center-to-Table Gardens in the West Concourse”. The program which began in May, gives convention goers a chance to see where their food comes from, on-site.

 

“The farm, operated by Urban Smart Farms, includes 81 towers for growing lettuce, microgreens, herbs and the occasional tomato or pepper plant, all on full view along the concourse from the main parking lot. An opening reception for the gardens is set for this afternoon. There are about seven types of lettuce grown on-site and a variety of greens including chards, choi, mustard, celery and kale.”
