Roof Top

Gardens in Brooklyn

Brooklyn-Grange-Farm - Roof

There is a growing trend in sustainable fariming….most of takes place on rural farms.

In Brooklyn NY, the farming takes place on rooftops. Brooklyn Grange Farm has several rooftop farms along with rooftop bee hives to raise crops that are sold to local residents and restaurants. Though studies are incomplete….there are fewer pollutants at the rooftop level than would be expected in the New York area.

This is a creative use of buildings….similar to the planting of trees in Detroit that uses much of the vacant land in the city.

The result – a new business (and community) model whether farms on rooftops or trees on vacant city lots.
