Urban farming goes through the roof

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. Read more about it at the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

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.
