James Brady has a passion about urban farming. They call him a “veggielante and a veggie preacher, but that doesn’t stop his proselytizing.” Brady is on a mission to teach school-aged children the benefits of growing their own produce, especially in small and non-traditional spaces.

“Part of your next meal should come from no (more) than 10-15 feet from your kitchen table,” Brady said, “so that means if you’re in an apartment building, you can put a bin like this on your patio or we could design these and put them on a rooftop or blacktop.
