One of the most fascinating aspects of the relatively recent trend of urban farming are rooftop gardens. Not only do such facilities use previously underutilized areas (or even previously unthinkable spaces) to create farms, but recent developments show that the possibilities are endless for how this type of facility can potentially feed countless people around the world, if executed properly.
One example of a superbly executed facility is the Gotham Greens rooftop farm in Chicago, located on the roof of the new-ish Method Soap factory on the City’s southside.
