If you've ever wanted to create a garden on your roof, this rooftop farming kit lets you transform essentially any bit of spare roof space into a full-on operation. Available from Urban Farmers, the UF Farm is a commercial scale system complete with greenhouses and custom shipping containers.

The modular kit could be used by anyone with an interest in growing food, whether it be a restaurant, grocery store or educational institution. The rooftop farming operation can be installed on just about any kind of roof, making it very versatile and offers the added benefit of the farmers not having to start from scratch. The aquaponics system can support both fish and plants, where the fish fertilize the plants and the plants filter the fishes' water.
