THE ECONOMY OF
how to make food production on rooftops economically sustainable
Register on the following link:
In Europe there are different rooftop farms that have proven to be relatively economically sustainable. But what are the factors needed to make this happen? What are the lessons learnt from some of the well-known rooftop farmers in Rotterdam, Antwerp and Turin? What ‘mistakes’ did they make and what turned-out to be a success?
Three rooftop farmers will meet online and give insights on the learning process they went through in the last few years.
In addition, they will explain what were the key factors that turned the rooftop farm into an economically sustainable project.
During the event, architect Tiziana Monterisi and her team will present one of the most socially innovative rooftop farming projects in Milan, now under construction until spring 2022. This rooftop farm will be realised on an existing social housing building, just south of Milan city centre.
The European experiences shared during this event will focus on supporting the Milan case for the part of maintenance and further sustainable management that a rooftop farming project need.
