BSA has chosen the field of Urban Agriculture, Agri-business, hydroponics, horticulture, aquaculture for one ot the first commercial redevelopment pilot demonstration projects. BSA has partnered with Square Fruit Labs to create a new system to grow vegetables by way of hydroponics and aeroponics. These vegetables can be grown all year round, which is best to get the area on MLK, considered food desserts. Vegetables grown this hi-tech way will be 3 times fresher than the ones you get from your local grocery stores.
