Great Heights! Today we had our first abundant and lush donation from Brooklyn Grange. Not only are they the leaders in rooftop farming in the US, they operate the WORLD’s largest rooftop soil farms, located on three roofs in New York City, and grow over 100,000 lbs of organically-cultivated produce per year.
They are fiercely dedicated to community and giving back, educational programming and events, in addition to growing and distributing fresh vegetables at their own rooftop farms and various markets around the city. If you don’t know about them yet, be sure to follow and visit their site, and do some socially distant shopping at their rooftop markets on the weekend.
We are so very grateful for the plentiful bounty of arugula, herbs, heirloom carrots and radishes. We were able to add veggies to over 100 produce packages to @stmarksumcbklyn. Arugula is washed and ready to be made into vats of pesto. So thankful! .
