Listen NEW YORKERS (all Burroughs).  Please help fund these locavore/foodies.  I’m about to donate $10 and they’ll name a bumble bee after me.  Donors who pledge $25 will receive a bag of fresh Brooklyn Grange vegetables; If I still lived there, I would rock this option.

Check out their fund raising video on  Kickstarter. They’ve got a formal business plan with 6 years of expansion, so there not just winging it. Check out the rad ‘test’ farm they built last year Roof Top Farms.  This is a great way to support and purchase organic produce in BK + Queens.

From their website’s mission statement: “Brooklyn Grange will be a 1 acre rooftop farm situated in New York City. Such a commercially viable rooftop farm has yet to be realized in this country. We will use simple green roof infrastructure to install over 1 million pounds of soil on the roof of an industrial building on which we will grow vegetables nine months of the year. Being in the country’s largest city, the farm will create a new system of providing local communities with access to fresh, seasonal produce. We plan to expand quickly in the first few years, covering multiple acres of New York City’s unused rooftops with vegetables. The business has many environmental and community benefits, and allows our city dwelling customers to know their farmer, learn where their food comes from, and become involved.”
