US (NY): Farm grows fresh microgreens for local restaurants and businesses

The Bronx is proving to be another hotspot for urban agriculture. 

An organization, called "Mi Oh My Hydroponic Farms," is working to change the distance produce has to travel to reach city households. Part of the operation is located in a one-bedroom apartment in the Allerton section of the borough.

CBS2's Elijah Westbrook spoke with some members about what it takes to grow microgreens before delivering them to local businesses and restaurants.

"We're very much oriented toward addressing food insecurity in the borough and making sure there's healthy food," said Marc de Konkoly Thege, co-director of Mi Oh My Hydroponic Farms.

He explained how they use a water filtration system and advanced light technology.
