In 2009, a hopeful crew of young Brooklynites banded together to do something unprecedented: build a commercial rooftop farm above the bustling streets of New York City. In addition to providing fresh local produce to their community, they also had another, bigger mission: to change the way people think about our food system by proving it is possible to create and sustain a profitable enterprise without sacrificing quality, the environment, or our core values.
