I’ve been a fan of green (vegetated) roofs for some time, trying continuously to work them into projects.  The idea of roof top farming, while not totally new, got a new impetus when I was at Greenbuild this year.  This whole concept of rooftop agriculture appeals to me, for a variety of reasons. Reuse of space that is otherwise lost in developed civilization. Fresh food where that would otherwise be crated and shipped. Functional green roof to reduce heat load on a building. Food production where there may be otherwise be a food desert.  This blog happens to capture some great things going on, so….enjoy the top 5 rooftops of 2013 on Eat Up
