A hipster friend of mine lives across the street from this project in Brooklyn and is part of their CSA and is always raving about it so I figured I'd share. Plus I think time-lapse of plants growing is so awesome to watch.

This 7-month time lapse documenting the first full growing season at the Brooklyn Grange's farm in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Not exactly permaculture plantings but it goes to show what we can do with all that space on our rooftops in urban areas.

Ok, that is so COOL!!! I new to permaculture but this seems to me to be permaculture in that is innovative and uses what they have to grow food and if it a CSA, they are providing food for others too.
