VERTIGO FARMING: o exemplo de NY

Vertigo Farming: Eco-savvy food lovers demand locally grown edibles to ensure freshness and reduce the carbon footprint of their food. Eating sustainably whilst living in a densely packed metropolis isn't easy, but Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm is making it possible for New York City dwellers. Its farm - over 40,000 square feet of rooftop agricultural land - grows tomatoes, herbs, greens and other vegetables according to organic, planet-friendly principles and sells them to local people and businesses. An urban green space, the Rooftop Farm also enhances the environment, improving air quality, cutting the heat island effect and providing a habitat for bees, butterflies and other insects.
