Incredible rooftop farm takes over Israel's oldest mall to grow thousands of organic vegetables

January 15, 2017View for printing

An amazing farm has sprouted in an unlikely place--the rooftop of Israel's oldest mall in the heart of Tel Aviv. Hidden between high-rises, "Green in the City" is a rooftop farm that produces 10,000 heads of leafy greens a month year-round using organic and hydroponic methods--no dirt required. This thriving example of urban agriculture is one of many surprising sustainable initiatives at the Dizengoff Center shopping mall, which includes bird habitats, a tree nursery, a rooftop apiary, and even a bat cave for native fruit bats to call home.
