With 65,000 square feet of warehouse rooftop space dedicated to growing all sorts of produce, New York City’s Brooklyn Grange is one of the largest urban farms in the world. Next year, however, the urban farm will seem like a dwarf in comparison to a new urban farm soon to open in Paris. The company behind this urban farm is Agripolis, and they are getting set to open a 150,000 square foot urban farm that will grow more than 2,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables every day during high season. Located atop a sprawling entertainment complex that’s currently undergoing renovations in the 15th arrondissement, the farm will be home to more than 30 different species of plants that will grow vertically with aeroponic farming, a method that uses the nutrient-filled mist to nourish the produce. And what makes the urban farm even more brilliant is that local residents will be able to secure plots of land, effectively turning the garden into a community space.
