When it comes to the push to make locally-grown food more common, cost-effective and competitive, few initiatives have more promise than Better Food Solutions' supermarket green roof initiative.

These hydroponic greenhouses will then allow these stores to access readily available, sustainable, and nearly carbon-neutral produce from their very roofs - something that will also dramatically cut down on transportation emissions. So far six locations are already using the program, and Better Food Solutions has plans to exponentially increase that number over the next year.
