A farmer in Milwaukee is taking the green roof to the next level. Community Growers’ founder Erik Lindberg’s rooftop garden is yeilding enough organic produce to launch a CSA.

It’s really more than a rooftop garden, it’s a rooftop farm! Check out this interview with the farmer, including a little tour of the garden!
Locals can snag veggies from Community Growers at Outpost Natural Foods. If you want to support what they’re doing even more, they’re selling 2009 CSA shares for $800 apiece. That’s a little steep for a CSA, but thanks to a green house, they’ll be able to extend their growing season into the winter. Typical CSA seasons don’t include the winter months.
