Equal parts open lab and restaurant, The Urban Harvest serves hydroponically grown mushrooms and sprouts which are nurtured in the restaurant itself.

The Urban Harvest might be more of a show than true activism, but their hydroponic system is a valuable tool for reducing pollution and growing locally. If you’re willing to take the trip (hopefully by environmentally-friendly transportation), it’s worth the ride, and you’ll come home with a mushroom plant for creating your own ‘zero mile’meals.
