We love a rooftop greenhouse, it’s the perfect place to start your own home farm!
But in the case of Lufa Farms’ new rooftop greenhouse – it’s more the place to start a farm to feed a city.
It covers an incredible 160,000 square feet – which if we put that into context is around the size of three football fields, it’s huge.
They say they want to grow food where people live and to do it in a way that’s truly sustainable.
This is, of course, brilliant for our planet as it eliminates “food miles” that is the distances that food must travel before we buy it.
Distance that comes at the expense of emissions and the planet.
Their four greenhouses can now feed 20,000 families every week!
That’s 2% of the population of Montreal!
Why Not Build Your Own Greenhouse?
If you’d like your food to become more sustainable, why not build your own, somewhat less ambitiously sized rooftop (or even garden-based) greenhouse.
We’ve rounded up the best greenhouse kits for 2021 and you don’t need to train to be a builder in order to put these together.
Who knows, maybe, one day, you’ll be ready to compete with Lufa Farms?
