A su­per­mar­ket in Seine-Mar­itime has tapped into the trend for home­grown food by sell­ing pro­duce grown from its rooftop gar­den. The 1,200m² veg­etable plot on the roof of Car­refour in Vil­liers-en-Bière is man­aged by lo­cal stu­dents (pic­tured be­low) who tend to the gar­den’s fruit trees and veg­etable plants. The stu­dents also share in­for­ma­tion with neigh­bour­ing schools and Car­refour cus­tomers. It’s hoped that their work will en­cour­age sim­i­lar projects in hy­per­mar­kets across the coun­try. A 6,000m² in-ground gar­den is cur­rently be­ing cre­ated near the Car­refour store in Mérignac.
