What started as a small micro green garden in an Edmonton garage has become a successful urban gardening venture.

Reclaim Urban Farm now runs their "vertical garden" out of a warehouse and grows about 50 lbs of produce — or about 250 large salads — every week.

The local producer's greens can be found at many Edmonton markets and restaurants.
