World's largest #rooftopgarden sprouts right here in #Chicago.

The 75,000-square-foot farm is situated atop Method Products manufacturing facility in Chicago’s Pullman neighborhood, which touts itself as the “world’s most perfect town .” Two acres is small as traditional farms go, but since this one is comprised completely of rooftop greenhouses, it’s anything but typical. Gotham Greens’ Chicago farm is their third rooftop farm and the first outside of New York. The greenhouse is outfitted with climate control, which makes it possible to cultivate delicious, nutritious produce throughout the year, despite Chicago’s wicked winter weather and heavy snowfall. The farm will supply local retailers and restaurants with hyper-local produce, available for purchase in many places on the same day it was harvested.
