NYC Rooftop Farm

Friday, January 14, 2011


Annie owns a Eagle Street rooftop veggie farm in Brooklyn. She grows only organic products and if you live in New York City you can even buy some of her goodness from April when the farm re-opens. Brilliant! Dears, how do you feel about organic products? Do you eat them?  xoxo

P.S: Isn't Annie adorable? I love her red dress!
P.P.S: More photos here.

That makes my heart go pitter-pat! So awesome. Yes, we buy mostly organic and free range products. We also try to buy as locally as possible. Once I had a little one, my perspective on eating really changed.
Have a great weekend!
Best,
Tina

I love the idea of a rooftop garden. I studied (and majored in) ornamental horticulture in college so i know a little about sustainable and organic gardening and am a fan of both.
Eating organically is not only better for the environment--but also for your metabolism. I always try to select organic products over normally grown when possible.
GREAT post, Diana.

eating organic can be expensive. because of this, husband and i arent really drawn to the organic section of the grocery store unless we find a good deal.

i too love her red dress!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

This is fabulous and quite inspiring to see how people can manifest their dreams no matter where they are, she's a farmer in Brooklyn - LOVT THAT. Yes, we do organic but are striving to do more this year.

Paul & Paula said...

yes please!!!

Stephanie said...

Oh, this makes me want to start growing more of my own food this year! But I do buy organic as much as possible. It's fairly inexpensive to do so at my local farmers market, which is where I buy most of my produce from May - October.

Carly said...

She is adorable.
I am not a fanatic about organic, but try to buy that way with fruits and veggies that have "soft" skin where the pesticides and chemicals would come thru...like pears, apples and so on. Bananas with really thick skin are OK either way, in my opinion.
Always buy organic milk tho for the baby!

Diana Mieczan said...

Caroline, totally agree! Since we started to eat more organic we feel so much better.

Diana Mieczan said...

Every time I'm in NYC I love going up to the top floor of a building because you NEVER know what your going to find and then you look down at what other people have done. This lil farm is soo cute!!! Lucky her! =)

How cool! We do eat some things organic, but I wish we could do more. We have a great farmers market near us that we like to go to.

How cool, what a unique project!

Eliza Jane said...

I make a point of eating organic whenever I can. And my meat is ALWAYS organic/free range. It's a little more expensive, but it's my body, after all! xx

Diana Mieczan said...

Totally agree, Eliza. We also buy all organic meat.
