The beach in front of Laurent's parents place was where the first airplane was flown from France to UK. When Ashley visited, there was snow down to the water line at this beach.

Eric Wesoff / Greentech Media
Urban agriculture has the potential to change the way we eat and farm, and to

or growing food vertically instead of using precious urban real estate?
