Rooftop Farm & Bee Sanctuary Manhattan, NYC

Tours open Spring of 2020

Urban Rooftop Farms

Located in the heart of NYC’s West Village, amidst the hustle and bustle streets and skyscrapers of Manhattan, Virginia Davies and her granddaughter Livie are growing a rooftop Potager lined with peach trees, strawberries, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, beans and even a watermelon. Urban Rooftop Farms recognizes the immense importance of teaching the future generation about environmental sustainability. Our rooftop farm achieves this through food, education, and events. Together, we are planting the seeds of a sustainable future.

A lifetime of experience

Virginia learned at a young age the importance of understanding where our food comes from, how it is grown and what it means to eat local.

Bee Sanctuary

Pollinators are an essential part of our ecosystem. Bee pollination is a vital factor of plant fertilization from a private rooftop garden to community and large scale commercial roof top city farms.

Meet Virginia Davies

OWNER, FOUNDER, ARCHITECTURE & DESIGNER
Virginia Davies is planting the seeds for the next generation of urban dwellers and expanding the vision for rooftop permaculture in NYC, beginning with her four and a half year old granddaughter, Livie. What began as an adventure in gardening, a farm to table education and family bonding time is blossoming into a hope for a more sustainable future, a mission to inspire the next wave of rooftop farming and community building in NYC.
It is one of her core beliefs that children today need to understand food, they need to be connected to the earth and as they become urban dwellers which is why she started her farm with her four and a half year old granddaughter.
