Urban farming on a grand scale

Urban farming is getting a major boost in Brooklyn as a giant operator makes plans to produce tons of fresh food. Bright Farms will create a massive, 100,000 square foot hydroponic greenhouse on the above rooftop in Sunset Park that will yield a million pounds of produce! It's not alone in farming NYC. Green rooftops are sprouting like, well, lettuce, carrots, radishes and tomatoes. Read the New York Times article for more details.
