Founded in 2009, Eagle Street Rooftop Farm is a 6,000-square-foot green roof and organic vegetable farm atop a warehouse in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. During New York City’s growing season, manager Annie Novak and the volunteers at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm operate a CSA and an onsite produce market, as well as supply fresh herbs and veggies to local restaurants.
In partnership with food-education organization Growing Chefs, the rooftop farm hosts a range of outreach and volunteer programs throughout the year. Owned by Broadway Stages and designed by Goode Green, the farm is made possible with the generous support of Gina Argento and family.
This project documents the 2010 and 2011 growing seasons at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm. Images from this project appear in the book Carrot City, as well as Momentum magazine and Architectural Digest’s shopAD blog, and was presented at UnionDocs in Williamsburg in 2012.
