The Urban Canopy ROOFTOP Farm!

A Food project in Chicago, IL

Our vision is to show how rooftop farming is a vital part of the urban agriculture movement to create a sustainable and equitable food system. Join us by helping us grow fruits & vegetables, organically & sustainably on the roof. The rewards for your pledges include options to visit us for a tour, cool gear, fresh produce, and even come by to volunteer on the rooftop!

The funds of this Kickstarter campaign will be used to purchase most of the stuff needed to farm 3000 sq. feet of the rooftop. Specifically: water pumps, reservoirs, tubing, piping, air pumps, seeds, and so on…

We estimate that this rooftop farm will then produce about 2,700 pounds of lettuces, mustard greens, chards, kale, peppers, tomatoes, squash, and more!
