A Rooftop Garden in Brooklyn

Thursday, February 27, 2014





Every city has a few of those amazing hidden gems that make us go wow when we see them. Well, one of those secret spots in NYC is the Brooklyn Grange, aka the largest rooftop garden in the world. This farm sits on the top of the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard and it measures a whopping 65,000 sq. ft. Impressive, isn’t it? Ben and his awesome team grows everything organically from tomatoes to basil, mushrooms and they even make their own honey :)

So if you want to lose yourself in something truly amazing and mesmerizing have a look at the time lapse above. It was shot over a period of 7 months and it will blow your mind with its beauty and it will surely make you crave spring like nobody’s business. What a gem!

P.S: Plus, this organic flower farm in Skagit Valley and the Beetlebung Farm.
