BROOKLYN GRANGE FARM AT THE NAVY YARD

Brooklyn Grange Farm at the Navy Yard

Brooklyn Grange Farm is a privately-owned, community-oriented rooftop farm in the heart of Brooklyn. It was built with rooflite® agricultural, a rooflite soil product designed specifically for agricultural use and designed to function as a green roof medium. With a dedication to developing the best soil product possible, rooflite continuously fine-tuned the soil to meet the goals of Brooklyn Grange Farm, and this project still informs our continuing product development for rooftop farms. The large scale farm’s green roof captures over 1 million gallons of stormwater each year and grows more than 50,000 lbs. of fresh produce a year.
