GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - "Back to Eden," a former ArtPrize entry, is turning into an urban farm in Grand Rapids.

The vertical farm will be used to grow thousands of herbs and vegetables for restaurants at the B.O.B.

The Live Wall was planted on the north side of the building this morning. The greenery, artistry, and fresh food source has chefs inside the B.O.B. excited. "They'll be as fresh as you can get. Two minutes off the plant, doesn't get any better than that."

The B.O.B. will begin using the herbs right away and the peppers and tomatoes and some of the other vegetable items will come later in the growing season.
