On the roof of a warehouse in downtown New York, a group of young people who are keen on environmental protection opened up an organic farm-“Brooklyn Farm”, A Rooftop Vegetable Garden.

Green idea, development for the air
Today, any international metropolis, whether it is New York, London, Tokyo or Beijing and Shanghai in China, is facing the problem of overpopulation.
How to ensure the area of public and private green space has become an increasingly serious challenge.

When people discovered that there was not much space on the ground of the metropolis to open up vegetable garden.
The idea of upward development naturally came into being.
Why not take advantage of those unused rooftops?
Looking down at the city from the sky, we can often only see the icy roofs full of machines and concrete.
Imagine how they will be decorated with soil and plants, and the city’s skyline will become green.
It is driven by this idea that the roofs of many commercial buildings, creative parks and public buildings have become experimental fields for some landscape architects and architects.
They took the lead in turning the dream of aerial vegetable garden into reality, and slowly development towards the terrace of a private house.
From New York to Shanghai, which has promoted the concept of green living after the World Expo, the new concept of roof planting is spreading faster than we can imagine.

The rest are used for toilet flushing on the two floors of the building, planting and environmental protection
The roof of the super supermarket, which specializes in green food, has become a must-see for people who buy organic fruits and vegetables.

More and more people are concerned about the source of food, especially those that can be eaten directly.
Fruits and vegetables.
In order to ensure that the vegetables and fruits in their mouths do not have disturbing ingredients.
Some quality-loving families prefer to spend more money and energy to personally go to the organic vegetable garden to buy the freshest dinner ingredients.
