An IGA grocery store in Montreal unveiled a new project on its roof Wednesday, The Huffington Post reports. The store's roof has been converted into a garden that covers 25,000 feet, most of it shaped to look like the IGA logo.

According to their press release, all the produce grown in the rooftop garden is certified organic, and the water used for the irrigation comes from a resourceful dehumidification system. The roof will also be housing eight Alvéole beehives, which will produce an estimated 600 jars of honey this season, in addition to their usual duties as farm pollinators.
