Urban farming is increasingly going vertical, and not just indoors. Rooftop farms have been popping up for quite some time now, and they're getting bigger and bigger.
For instance, a building in NYC will get the city's biggest rooftop farm: a 140,000-square-foot facility in Sunset Park. In addition to growing produce, which will go to restaurants and farmers markets, the new facility — operated by Brooklyn Grange — offers a “Swiss army knife” of benefits for the city, according to co-founder Anastasia Plakias.

Meanwhile, in Paris, what's said to be the world's biggest urban farm on a rooftop in the city. Urban-farming company Agropolis already has facilities in the city, and soon a 14,000m² farm is set to open in the south-west of Paris. Find out more at The Guardian.
