NYCs largest convention center debuts working rooftop farm

New York's Jacob K Javits Convention Center has been home to the largest green roof in NYC Since 2014. Now, the venue has added a one-acre farm that is already supplying ingredients to its kitchens, cutting the use of fossil fuels and carbon emissions. The farm is expected to provide 40,000 fruits and vegetables annually and has already supplied the produce for this year’s New York Comic Con. Equipped with the garden, farm, orchard, greenhouse, bee aviary and solar panels, the Javits Center will not only grow food efficiently but will also be a hub for animals, housing 35 different bird species and five different bat species.
