Urban Farming

The New York Times City Room blog had a neat post the other day, “High Above Queens, the Dirt Is Deep, and Good.”

It’s a 40,000-square-foot farm on the roof of a building in Queens. Apparently they will “grow tomatoes, eggplants, chilies and various leafy greens to be sold at a farm stand on the premises and to a few restaurants”.

Fantastic idea!
