This week we welcomed Jerry Caldari into the studio. Jerry is one of the architects behind Brooklyn Grange, an urban farm located on the rooftop of a 6-story industrial building. Jerry tells us about how large a scale this rooftop farming project was from an architectural standpoint, and expresses his optimism about the future of urban farming. This program has been sponsored by Fairway Market. Today’s music provided by Takstar.

“Brooklyn Grange wasn’t a science project, it was a business plan with a business model.” [4:00]

“I’m excited that you can grow things to eat in the city.” [21:45]
