The ur­ban farm

Element - - Better Cities -

Brook­lyn’s 560sqm Ea­gle Street Rooftop Farm cap­i­talises on a large, un­used stretch of space atop one of in­dus­trial Green­point’s ware­house build­ings to lend new mean­ing to “lo­cally sourced in­gre­di­ents” – it runs its own farm­ers mar­ket, and its or­gan­i­cally pro­duced veg­eta­bles are bi­cy­cled to nearby restau­rants. An of­fi­cial Com­mu­nity Sup­ported Agri­cul­ture Pro­gramme, Ea­gle Street is also part­nered with the food ed­u­ca­tion or­gan­i­sa­tion Grow­ing Chefs, which runs pro­grammes to con­nect peo­ple to their food “from field to fork”. rooftop­farms.org and grow­ingchefs.org
