Rooftop Design / September 8, 2018 / Juan M. Tate
Homes and facilities with little to no space for farming and gardening is something common to urban places. In urban places people have learned to adapt their desire to start farming or gardening through different methods that allow them to start planting even with just little space. If you have a space to spare in your rooftop you too can start rooftop farming in your home or office. Rooftop farming is a practice that lets people make use of any rooftop space that they have for farming as well as gardening. Different crops can be grown depending on the space that you have. You can plant herbs and small vegetables if you have a small to moderate sized space. If you have bigger space you can also employ vertical farming on your rooftop.
