Higher Ground Farm will be building Boston’s first commercial rooftop farm in Spring 2013

Group starts campaign Kickstarter campaign to help grow the company

Higher Ground Farm will be Boston’s first commercial rooftop farm, and the second largest open-air rooftop farm in the world! We’re installing our food-producing green roof on a 55,000 square foot space on the South Boston waterfront in the Spring of 2013.

Your contributions will go directly to the Higher Ground Farm Green Roof Installation Project, commencing in the Spring of 2013. To grow our farm we first need to install green roof components – a system of layers to protect the roof and promote drainage, and of course soil! Our friends at Recover Green Roofs are ready to help us do the work. We’ll also need seeds and tools (not to mention sunshine, but that’s free!)
