Tapping into the expanding market for rooftop farming and green roofs, this is the first stylish, easy-to-use book for urban gardeners interested in utilizing their roof space for growing food. As more people experiment with growing their own food in neighborhood areas, urban farms and edible gardens are popping up on rooftops across the country. But there can be challenges, as rooftop spaces have their own unique set of rules for soil maintenance, watering, crop management, installation, and more. Author Annie Novak founded America's first fully landscaped green roof farm, and her expertise shines, in the first book for a general audience on how to make an edible rooftop garden thrive. With sample crop plans, case studies from around the country, and notes on harvesting, fertilizing, and more, this guide provides inspiration and practical advice for a new generation of urban farmers and gardeners.
