Curbed news journalist Valeria Ricciulli brings us the story of a new rooftop farm. The new farm is a quarter of an acre located six stories up on the roof of a new downtown development called Essex Crossing.

The farm is operated by a non-profit called Project EATS (http://projecteats.org) that will make the produce available locally. The farm will also host programming for public schools on nutrition and offer free
Saturday breakfasts for seniors in the neighborhood. You can read the full story here:
