You can head down on the farm in one of the city's oldest neighborhoods.

Crews are building greenhouses on a two-acre plot of land in Camp Washington. The group "Common Orchard Project" is behind this.

The plot of land will also include an orchard with fruit trees. The aim is to grow fresh food in communities that don't have stores, which are known as food deserts. Food deserts are linked to obesity and poor health.

Organizers are also planting orchards in other city neighborhoods.
