I know we’re a little early for garden talk for most parts of the country, but I was just reading about urban gardner Annie Novak in who brought this 6000 square foot rooftop garden in Greenpoint Brooklyn to fruition. The Eagle Street Rooftop Farm has a Sunday market and also provides fresh produce to local restaurants.
This innovative farm utilizes the latest rooftop gardening technologies while remaining organic, which is not an easy feat. Luckily Novak is up for the job, and has an eager corps of volunteers she’s training to be urban farmers. The fresh food and the view are their own reward.
To learn more about where to buy their produce or to volunteer, check out rooftopfarms.org.
