Long Island City-based Brooklyn Grange will expand its Queens rooftop garden operation to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the New York Post reported, but with no specified date for when the move will occur.
The farm will occupy a 45,000-square-foot rooftop plot on a building close to Flushing Avenue and Cumberland Street, which will be fully covered in soil to grow fruits and vegetables. A greenhouse will also sit atop the roof space. Below, the farm will host regular farmer’s markets to sell fresh ingredients to local residents and businesses. [more]
