Positive Future #877 (Feature photo – Javits Center – CCA SA 4.0)

Billed as one of the busiest convention centers in the U.S., the Javits Center in New York has over 3.3 million square feet of convention space. However, on one section of the roof is a farm. With soil 18 inches deep, it provides really fresh produce to the neighborhood.

The project is an effort of the Brooklyn Grange, and organization dedicated to rooftop farming. https://www.brooklyngrangefarm.com/
