Another Rooftop Farm Coming to Brooklyn

January 14, 2010 at 3:12 am Leave a comment

The rooftop farm on Eagle Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, was such a hit another one will be opening this spring.  The new one-acre farm — called Brooklyn Grange — will be five times the size of the Eagle Street rooftop site and will aim to operate as a sustainable small business.

The entrepreneurs behind the new venture will hold a meatball competition this Friday, Jan. 15, to raise money for the farm.  The “Meatball Slapdown!” will take place at The Meat Hook, a butcher shop in Williamburg, at 8 p.m. Five Brooklyn restaurants — Frankie’s Spuntino, Bamonte’s, Roebling Tea Room, The Meat Hook and Roberta’s —will participate in the contest.  The event costs $75 at the door.  It’s $50 if tickets are purchased in advance from brooklyngrangefarm.com.
