This hydroponic farm at the Martin Luther King Educational Campus in Manhattan, New York was built by the nonprofit Teens For Food Justice. Each week students harvest more than 150 pounds of fresh produce, which then gets served in the school cafeteria. 

Teens For Food Justice’s goal is to promote universal access to affordable, fresh food by training students to become urban farmers in their schools.
