The Edible Apartment

THE EDIBLE APARTMENT "TEA" is a 501c3 urban farming nonprofit that inspires people around the world to build community and health through growing food. The pilot project was planted in the middle of Los Angeles in an unused apartment building front yard. It was the result of founder Jill Volat's frustration with the limitations of wanting to grown food, but not owning a home with private land. What was once a brown lawn became a "front yard farmer's market" for the entire community. TEA has inspired people all over the world to take charge of their their health, build community and beautify their community one tomato plant at a time.
