About Up Top Acres: 
Up Top Acres is reimagining what a farm looks like. We grow food on roofs - converting neglected spaces into productive farmland and environmental safeguards. We create spaces for communities to interact with and learn about food, in order to establish agriculture as a fixture of city life.
