After visiting Omni, WCIU headed to Baker Miller to taste some of the locally-sourced goods the bakery made with wheat harvested from one of our rooftop farms. Read more about our wheat harvest here and check out the accompanying broadcast below. 

Jon Hansen brought harvested wheat from the Omni Ecosystems rooftop to Baker Miller where they used the locally sourced grains to bake cookies. Local and sustainable! Jon thought they tasted amazing!
