"Vertical Veggies"

Fresh fruit and vegetables are limited resources in many communities across America. In addition to this, urban neighborhoods face the challenge of limited ability to counter food shortages by growing food in a garden. This doesn't stop the students of Northwest Pennsylvania Collegiate Academy from engineering a way to grow their own fresh produce. The students work together under the same guidelines as professional engineers to propose, develop and construct vertical gardens which take up far less space than traditional gardens, thus making them more practical for an urban environment such as Erie.
