Our Earth New Urbanism: ep 2 - Rooftop Farming

Solutions for Urban Living #2: Turn warehouse roofs into city farms and grow local, sustainably produced food. Annie Novak and Ben Flanner have been farming the rooftop of a Brooklyn warehouse since May 2009 and the 6,000 square-foot farm has over 30 different varieties of vegetables. Nearby restaurants have caught on to the idea and the urban farmers have been making deliveries on their bikes - now that's local.
