Rooftop Farms.

March 19, 2013

At this point in our relationship, you all know that my affinity for Brooklyn knows no limits.

So you must also know that my countdown to spring could not move fast enough so I can begin to plan my weekends for Brooklyn adventures. One place in particular has caught my eye.

Brooklyn Grange is a farm and green house that grows over 40,000 pounds of organic produce per year on rooftops. They then distribute these fresh foods throughout the city markets and restaurants for all of us to enjoy. This May will mark year 3 for Brooklyn Grange and they are continuously growing. With clear goals of fresh tastes and healthy, sustainable foods, New York City is eating up the newest form of urban farming.

You can visit the farm for a tour, volunteer or host an event on the rooftop overlooking the Manhattan skyline. I cannot wait to take a tour in the warm spring sun to enjoy a fresh tomato.

    Nice post about Brooklyn Grange (BG), my neighbor in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. When you visit BG be sure to stop by BLDG 92, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center, to explore the history of the Yard.
