The Gates

With new housing developments being built at a rapid rate in Columbia, developers need to find ways to make their projects uniqueWhile some build a golf course or a pool, The Gates on the southwest side of Columbia is focusing on food, specifically Urban Agriculture.  What that means is that the common space in the development will have fruit and vegetable plants instead of just ornamental landscaping.  Adam Saunders from the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture is in charge of the project and he believes this will give the development a unique identity.
