Earlier this week, I visited the Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm in LIC. I love the idea of utilizing roof space to bring farms to NYC, and making city dwellers a little more connected to their food sources. The rooftop was huge – apparently it’s the largest rooftop soil farm in the world. You can see in the pics below some of the neat ways they fertilize their produce. At one point I commented on the incredible smelling brownies from a nearby bakery, but learned that it was actually coming from the nutrient rich, repurposed Mast Brothers cocoa husks in the soil! There were also oyster shells scattered around the ground to provide calcium to plants!
