ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A vacant building at the old Hamm's Brewery in St. Paul is being transformed to house an indoor urban garden and 15,000 fish.
Urban Organics has been working on the building for more than a year. Urban Organics' Fred Haberman says eventually you'll see massive racks of leafy greens fertilized naturally by tilapia that will be held in 3,500-gallon tanks.
The business plans to supply local markets and schools beginning this fall.
WCCO-TV says the City of St. Paul and Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems are involved in the project.
