Rooftop Farms atop a warehouse in Brooklyn grow more than 30 varieties of organic fruits and vegetables, including heirloom tomatoes, zucchini, aubergines and green onions.

And then you grow stuff in the dirt. But most importantly, a green roof has great environmental benefits such as storm-water reduction, which is a huge problem in New York City. There's cooling for the building and if we can amass enough g...

AeroFarms grows a variety of leafy salad greens using a process called "aeroponics," which relies on air and mist. AeroFarms' crops are grown entirely indoors using a reusable cloth medium made from recycled plastics. In the absence of sun exposure, the company uses LE...

This video was originally shot in August 2009. A student from The POINT's ACTION program brought copies with him when he visited Michelle Obama's organic garden at the White House later that month. A version of this video then debuted at the South Bronx Food & Film Expo on December 5th, 2009 at The POINT and was also screened during the opening of the first ever Bronx Food Summit hosted by Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. on May 1st, 2010.

It has since given birth to a new, wholly inclusive, Bronx Borough-wide educational/vocational initiative: Green Bronx Machine. Green Bronx Machine and Bronx Educator/Advocate Stephen Josep...
