Expect to see something exciting blooming on the roof of the Boston Design Center in the near future!
“Drum roll please… Boston are you ready?! We’ll be the 2nd largest roof farm in the world. Fresh roof-grown veggies are in your future!”
This was the announcement made on November 14, 2012 via Facebook by Higher Ground Farm, a Boston-bred outdoor-urban agriculture company. The company recently announced that construction of a 55,000sf organic roof-top farm will begin in Spring 2013. A deliciously sustainable array of fresh produce will be grown and sold through Community Agriculture Shares, an on-site farm stand, and many local restaurants
