Brooklyn’s Eagle Street Rooftop Farm

An organic, 6,000 square foot green roof in Brooklyn: Eagle Street Rooftop Farm is the nation’s first commercial green roof vegetable farm with benefits that include fresh organic food with a super low carbon footprint for New Yorkers and local restaurants, and improved support of wildlife in the neighborhood. It’s also energy efficient; the soil helps regulate the temperature of the building below. From Science Friday: Tending Crops On A Brooklyn Rooftop.
