This looks pretty cool, via press release no less (I (almost) never post PRs).

PIE IN THE SKY: All About Greenpoint’s Rooftop Farms
w/ Annie Novak


MONDAY, Oct. 5, 7:30pm
(709 Lorimer St., Brooklyn)

New York City is a Farmer’s Paradise! Just ask Annie Novak, one of the masterminds behind Greenpoint’s Rooftop Farms, a 6,000 square foot organic farm picture-esquely plopped on top of a warehouse overlooking midtown Manhattan. Her operation — founded in partnership with Ben Flanner, a neophyte to farming, and Goode Green, a green-roofing specialist — currently produces produce for a host of Brooklyn gourmandizers, including Anella and Marlow and Sons. They even run a farm stand featuring fresh picked produce every Sunday! Come hear how this urban Agronomist tells us the unlikely story of how she did it — and learn how you can too!
