BENEFITS OF URBAN ROOFTOP FARMING
Rooftop farms provide unique opportunities for city dwellers to grow things and interact with nature within the physical constraints of the city, increasing awareness of environmental issues and food health. They create places for active recreation and social interaction, and promote engagement within high rise communities, allowing people to enjoy a healthier, more balanced lifestyle.
Rooftop spaces help green the city. Like green roofs, rooftop farms can cool and insulate (reduce solar heat gain to) the building below, and can make a significant contribution to sustaining the city’s green infrastructure.
