Rooftop Farms

Join the rooftop farming revolution

Towns don’t seem to offer much room to grow food. But every building that takes up floor space has a roof that is full of agricultural potential.

And with a lightweight, upright design, the Tower Farms growing system is perfectly suited to the task.

Chapala Gardens

Logo Chapala Grden

Company located in Santa Barbara, California, United States.

Started by a small family with no previous farming experience, Chapala Gardens now leads the local food movement in Santa Barbara.

The farm makes the most of its 100-year-old rooftop grow space — producing nearly a ton of live produce a year, which goes to CSA customers, farmers markets, restaurants and food banks.

Roots on the Rooftop

Company located in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.

In New Orleans, shoppers at Rouses supermarket can buy fresh vegetables and herbs harvested within 100 feet — and right above their heads — just minutes before they hit store shelves.

As a result, Roots on the Rooftop enables Rouses to provide customers with a level of product quality that competitors simply cannot match.

Step Up on Vine

Company located in Los Angeles, California, USA.

Formerly an abandoned Hollywood hotel, Step Up on Vine is now a LEED Platinum certified solar-powered shelter for the chronically homeless. It also houses a rooftop Tower Farm.

Step Up on Vine’s rooftop farm provides tenants with job training, horticultural therapy and, of course, healthy food — up to half a ton a year.

3 reasons rooftop farms are on the rise

As urbanization overtakes traditional farmland, many forward-thinking farmerpreneurs are heading to city rooftops.

Why? Because a roof farm allows you to:

  • Produce hyper-local food that sets you apart and attracts business (since people demand and pay more for local products)
  • Convert unused space into a productive plot and save the money you would have spent on land
  • Help offset the “heat island” effect, thereby reducing energy usage, carbon emissions, and poor air quality
