First Commercial Rooftop Farm Opens in Washington D.C.
Something’s growing atop Washington D.C. restaurant Oyamel. Seedlings poke young leaves out of four inches of soil. The new green roof, which opened in May, is part of Up Top Acres, a network of rooftop farms. Founded by Kathleen O’Keefe, Kristof Grina and Jeffrey Prost-Greene, it installs and farms green roofs around the city.
