Living in a concrete jungle, it can often seem like there is little space to grow the foods that nurture us mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Leading the way in growing their own food rather than relying on imports, Montréal have created the world’s biggest rooftop greenhouse.
The largest city in Canada’s Québec province now boasts a rooftop as big as three football fields that is flourishing with food to feed 2% of the city’s residents.
With a whopping 160,000 square feet of space, there is room for 100 different varieties of fruits and vegetables to work their magic and flourish all year round.
Lufa Farms are the brains behind the operation, having launched back in 2009 on a quest to reconnect people with where their food comes from.
Their mission is to grow vegetables in the city on rooftops by partnering up with farmers and food-makers, before providing it all to customers via their online market.
