Roofs in NYC can be hard enough to put yourself on, let alone anything besides a metal folding chair or a milk crate. Some people are determined enough, and manage to set up their roof tops with couches, canopies and kiddie pools. And then there’s people like Annie Novak who make the rest of us look like slackers by putting a working farm on their roofs. Novak is co-founder of Rooftop Farms in Greenpoint, and you can buy their produce at their weekly stand or eat it in restaurants around Brooklyn. Tonight at Pete’s Candy Store, she’s the speaker at the Open City Dialogue series. She’ll tell you how you too can grow edible plants on your roof, and maybe some stories about traveling the world to hang out with sheep and blueberries.
