“We have seven different farming sites, but our main hub is the Food Roof located at 1335 Convention Plaza, 63103. The Food Roof is a 10,500 sq. ft. rooftop farm built as an original design that couples as stormwater management site and also a market garden that can produce up to 4,000 lbs per year.
There are two main outlets to experience our food. One is through our ticketed events that we hold throughout the year on the Food Roof. You can look into these events on our website. Also, restaurants “The Dark Room” and “Turn” (both located in midtown within the Kransberg Arts District), have our produce that people can experience.
Every Saturday 9am-12pm (weather dependent) we have community days on the Food Roof (1335 convention Plaza). Community days means that everyone and anyone can come up to enjoy our roof. People have the choice of helping us garden or simply hang out and enjoy the space.”

“We integrate the practice of bio-intensity and polyculture together. We are not working with a lot of space on our rooftops and gardens, so we take advantage of certain crops and crop families that like to be planted together. We then plant those crops closer together for bio-intensity and also adjacent to nitrogen fixers like beans to enhance growth.”
