What’s Up with Rooftop Farming in NYC?

In the current issue of Sierra magazine you’ll find “Up on the Farm,” a story I wrote about New York City’s newest growth industry: rooftop farming. The placement of greenhouses and dirt plots on top of office buildings has garnered almost universal praise — I mean, how much more local can you get? — but beneath the topsoil of harmony is a fierce competition over the shape of urban agriculture.

Check out the print version of the story at the link above, or, if you prefer to get your news from talking heads, watch me in conversation about it with Sierra senior editor Paul Rauber. This was the first-ever Google+ Hangout for both me and the magazine, so pardon any rough edges.
