Tel Aviv’s Rooftop Farm Grows Fresh Food for Thousands – Katherine Martinko (Tree Hugger)
Dizengoff Center is a vast shopping mall in central Tel Aviv. There is a vegetable stand just inside the door, built of wood and packed with bags of fresh, wet leafy greens and herbs.
The vegetables sell out so quickly that the stand has to be restocked four times daily. They’re grown on the roof of the shopping center.
An urban rooftop farm has been established over the past year with two commercial greenhouses and 750 sq.m. of growing space.
The rooftop farm produces 10,000 heads of lettuce per month year-round, and grows 17 different varieties of greens and herbs using a variety of hydroponic systems that grow food two times faster than in soil.
