Would you guess that the Brooklyn navy yard is the location of the world’s first commercially viable urban rooftop vineyard? With the help of Finger Lakes industry leaders and Cornell University, Rooftop Reds has developed a custom urban planter system. 42 of these planters cover the 14,800 square-foot rooftop at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. On this episode of Tech Bites, host Jennifer Leuzzi talks with Devin Shomaker, founder and managing partner of Rooftop Reds, about the recent installation of solar panels, community summer pop-up events, and urban vines. Episode 239 of Tech Bites is made possible by the generosity of Sombra, the award-winning, organic mezcal.
