Building a Rooftop Farm

Time lapse of the Bushwick Starr rooftop farm construction

Construction is well under way on the roof at Bushwick Starr.  The first systems will go online this week in time for the Big Green Theater Event Friday, April 22nd and Saturday, April 23rd.  We will be at BGT Benefit Event on Saturday to commemorate the theater event and kick off the beginning of the growing season. In the above video, you can see the beginning of our trellis, which will hold the tomatoes, cucumbers and other vine plants in a canopy of greenery and deliciousness.  We will be growing a lot of delicious produce, including a small fruit tree, a large variety of peppers, herbs, tomatoes and so many more, in various  hydroponic systems on the roof!  We are always looking for volunteers. If interested, please contact Boswyck Farms at

Keep following for updates on the farm!

Happy Growing!
