More on Gardening in the City, This Time Commercially

Le Devoir this weekend had several stories about the movement toward urban gardening.  Chief among them was one about Lufa Farms, which has built a commercial rooftop greenhouse.

This is the third year that the firm  has delivered boxes of fresh produce to Montrealers--the 3,000 subscribers can share in the 1000 to 1500 pounds of produce harvested daily.  Lufa Farms is also building another 40,000 square foot rooftop greenhouse in the Montreal area to add to the 30,000 square foot installation that is set in an industrial area.

A great idea!

The photos are of what the current farm looked like last winter, and inside a greenhouse in full tomato season.

Lufa had an open house awhile ago and I took a tour. It is impressive indeed.

Apparently they hold open houses from time to time. You should take the tour.
