Canada: Lufa Farms and Sky Harvest pioneering with rooftop greenhouses

With demand growing for local produce and a shortage of open fields in urban areas, the concept is attractive. But Lufa Farms founder Mohamed Hage has found that it is way more complicated to be a rooftop farmer than setting up a glass house and planting seeds.It took him five years just to find a suitable building, convince the owner and the city building department to allow it, and to design and build it. And it took an investment of almost $2-million to get it off the ground and into production.


In an interview with The Globe and Mail, Hage gives away some unique project details Also Aaron Quesnel, founder of Sky Harvest Inc., who plans to startup a rooftop greenhouse farm in Vancouver is featured.
