Rooftop Farming and The Science Barge
As we move ahead in 2010, there are a number of things TCGMN is doing, including our work with Permaculture Research Institute and Ecological Gardens, a landscape design firm to help us build a live, productive rooftop for our Kensington Park retail project. The rooftop farm will incorporate the use of water troughs with Earthbox planters and use plant polycultures for good organic production. The urban farming at Kensington Park won’t stop there however, TCGMN has teamed with Trellis About It- Design Competition and will install edible walls, espaliers and potato bins at the property.
Although this will be the first project of its kind in The Twin Cities, several groups like The Science Barge have created their own programming. Urban Agriculture- The Science Barge
