This class will take place online. Registered students will receive login instructions.

Farms and edible gardens are popping up on rooftops across the country. But rooftop spaces have their own unique challenges for soil maintenance, watering, crop management, installation, and more. Annie Novak, co-founder of Eagle Street Farm (pictured here), America's first fully landscaped green roof commercial vegetable farm, and author of the 2016 bestseller The Rooftop Growing Guide, shows you how to make your rooftop garden thrive. 

From vegetable selection to pest control to composting, you'll learn the basic tricks of the rooftop growing, covering both container and green roof gardens on rooftops and terraces.
