New York’s First Greenhouse
Trees aren’t the only things growing in Brooklyn. A new project has sprouted as well: New York’s first greenhouse facility, Gotham Greens. This rooftop greenhouse paradise produces 80 tons of premium pesticide-free produce all year round, catering to local supermarkets, restaurants and markets.
Gotham Greens is dedicated to sustainable growing practices, such as hydroponics - growing plants in liquid mineral nutrient solutions and without soil. This method is eco-conscious because it conserves water, eliminates the use of chemical pesticides and allows farming to flourish in any season.
Co-founders Vijay Puri and Eric Haley are committed to using state of the art agricultural techniques to provide fresh, delicious and affordable local produce to their fellow urbanites.
