GREEN BAY (WLUK) — The Farmory unveiled a new sculpture in front of its entrance on Green Bay’s east side.

It’s called “Rooted” and was developed by Kent Hutchinson.  The sculpture resembles lettuce heads, which the Farmory grows.  The roots are then represented by the metal on the bottom half.

It’s meant to represent two principles–aquaponics and community engagement.  “To celebrate our community, the roots in our community and also the new growth that’s coming in the community in terms of development and specifically with the Farmory project,” Farmory Executive Director Claire Thompson said. 

The Farmory is the first urban farm of its kind in Northeast Wisconsin.  It’s a local hub for food production and education.
