Eagle Street Rooftop Farm is one of a growing number of green roof projects popping up in urban settings. The 6,000-square-foot organic garden project, designed by Lisa Goode, tops a Brooklyn warehouse.
Goode says that green roofs reduce utility bills by helping to regulate building heat and extending roof-use life cycle. The roof at the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm includes an installation of 'rooflite' Certified Green Roof Media and helps to re-route rainwater that would otherwise go directly to storm drains.
