Many residents in high density cities, such as Hong Kong, have a strong desire to grow their own vegetables and to subscribe to an environmentally sustainable urban lifestyle. Rooftop farming can offer opportunities. Growing vegetables and fruits on a roof poses specific environmental and technical challenges, as it varies from typical urban farming, given the amount of sun and wind differs greatly from farming at ground level. With experience in building rooftop farms, and 25 years of research and field work in the landscape field, Mathew Pryor has developed this companion guide for individuals and community groups wanting to create and run sustainable productive farms on their own roofs, with a minimum of effort and expense.
