The natural world has set the precedent for life and the cycles in which living beings come and go. Many of our challenges in daily life are the struggles between time, money, and our personal health. With that, a look into ways in which our environment can teach us to live healthier longer lives may benefit us all. This project will explore the most basic necessity of our being, as well as how we supplement our bodies daily with nutrition. The present need for non-processed pesticide free food can become a reality for those in Ely, Minnesota through research and development of an indoor communal garden. The site of the indoor garden facility is near proposed outdoor community gardens, as well as a baseball complex that initiates a sense of community in that specific area of the city. This facility will be able to produce fresh fruits, vegetable, herbs, and flowers for the majority of the citizens in the community of Ely by utilizing the 20,000 square feet of space. With that, the hope of a healthier people emerges.
