Sky Vegetables – Rooftop greenhouse in the Bronx

Yara Nagi Sky Vegetables Rooftop Farm Bronx New York 12 steps to urban farming

“I don’t think that there’s anything better than having this as an office, every day. It is really quite a beautiful thing to have greenery around you”

A beautiful quote straight from a rooftop in the Bronx. A quote by Yara Nagi, the operations manager at Sky Vegetables, a client of Agritecture Consulting. When you listen to Yara, you really feel the magic that you get when passion meets intelligence.

The magic is especially powerful because this project is one of the pioneering urban rooftop farms that have been popping up around the world.

And there’s more: the greenhouse of Sky Vegetables has a high degree of integration into the building it is a part of!

More than vegetables

As you can see in the video on the right, Yara is also very knowledgeable when it comes to social equality. This is something you can also feel during the interview and tour in the greenhouse.

We encourage this from the bottoms of our hearts because we believe that this is the true power of Urban and Vertical Farming! Food, as a foundation of society, has much more impact than you would initially think!
