We all know urban farming is really taking root (*ahem*) in many places like Chicago, San Francisco, and New York. Check out this video about urban farmers in NYC showing a bit of what they do, the movements and organizations they’re a part of, and where the food goes once it leaves the rooftop.
This farm provides organic food for a farmers market, CSA, and six organic restaurants, has zero carbon footprint, uses rainwater instead of irrigation, keeps chickens & rabbits for manure and nutrients, and uses compost for soil. It’s a closed loop system: everything that goes out can come back.
Where is this 6,000 square foot model organic farm? On a rooftop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Meet The Eagle Street Rooftop Farm.
