Sometimes it seems to be the people with the most insane ideas who do the greatest things. Brooklyn Grange got funded through Kickstarter in 2010 with the crazy brilliant idea of building a commercial rooftop farm on an acre of building in NYC. They did it Long Island City and it has been so successful that they are now working on a second location, in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, where my studio is.
The BNY farm will fill 45,000-square-foot of rooftop and it will supply local restaurants, shops and people like me with fresh, organic produce. I can’t wait.
