Fresh Vegetables Grown Right on Your Roof
Green City Growers installs urban farms high and low, including on rooftops! Rooftops have great potential to grow food for the bustling communities below, and in an ever-crowded world, why not utilize the abundant horizontal space right above our heads?
Green roofs have benefits beyond the potential to grow fresh vegetables: they retain stormwater runoff, create cooler microclimates, reduce buildings’ heating and cooling costs, filter pollutants, and extend the life of a roof.
Green City Growers has installed and maintains many rooftop farms throughout the Greater Boston Area. These include Ledge Kitchen and Drink (which just won an award for their rooftop farm) in Dorchester, B.good’s Washington Street location in Downtown Boston, and Flatbread in Somerville.
Recover Green Roofs, a New England green roofing company, provides the physical foundations for our rooftop farms. The video below details Ledge Kitchen and Drink’s rooftop farm shows how all of our businesses work in harmony.
Green City Growers is slated to complete the largest rooftop farm in New England as of Summer 2013. Stay tuned to find out where our next big project will be!
Rooftop farms aren’t just for restaurants! You can have your very own at your business, school, home, or place of worship. For more information on our rooftop farms and how to get your own, email Lyndsay Rose at
