Urban Organics has launched nine new blends of its locally grown greens. The salad blends are native to Twin Cities chefs and restaurants, to shoppers at co-ops and grocery stores (such as Hy-Vee and Lunds & Byerlys) across the upper Midwest. The low-carbon-footprint, hyperlocal, organic produce is grown by farming fish and produce using aquaponics: a closed-loop system that combines aquaculture (raising fish indoors in tanks) and hydroponics (growing plants without soil). The line spans from traditional Spring Mix to a Umami Blend featuring arugula, bok choy and green kale.
