In order to meet the growing demand for healthy, local food, cities must convert unused spaces, like rooftops, to farms. By eliminating the need to import food, cities can make fresh food more available, expand economic benefits, and lessen environmental impacts.

Developers and property owners are beginning to recognize the potential of using these otherwise unused spaces. In this presentation, we examine successful transformations of rooftops into urban farms.
