Our new 8,000 square foot farm on the rooftop at Tinton Avenue in the Bronx, NY is complete!!! We are now the FIRST rooftop hydroponic farm in the USA to sit atop public housing. Over 2,500 pounds of fresh food is grown every week in the heart of the Bronx, New York!
Sky Vegetables is a leading urban rooftop farming company (see www.SkyVegetables.com)
Farming on the rooftops? Yes! That's right! While we take our local farms for granted sometimes, most urban areas rarely see fresh, nutritious produce. Since there is a lack of available farmland in our urban areas, they are forced to rely on a cumbersome and ineffecient food transportation and distribution system. Sky Vegetables brings local food production back! Joe, who is the director of Farming, and the rest of the Sky Vegetables Team, design, build, and operate pesticide free hydroponic farms on otherwise unused rooftops in our cities. We currently have a farm under construction in the Bronx, NY, and a second development slated to begin in 2012 in Brockton, MA. The cities of Boston, MA and San Francisco, CA are also working with Sky Vegetables for rooftop farms to be located in their cities in the very near future. With our R & D/Grower Training Facility located here at the farm, we are always looking for new and dynamic people who want to get invovled!
