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 thanks to the help of expert and agriculturist Leonard Hagg. 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.
Every step of the process
We are not just dropping seeds and transporting. We are methodical in every step of the process.
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.
We are using cutting-edge urban rooftop farming techniques. Wind, sunlight and exposure, rain, heat, and space are key components of shaping and structuring our farm.
Everything produced at the farm is given back to the community in hope for a more sustainable future, a mission to inspire the next wave of rooftop farming and community building in NYC.
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.
We only produce products that are grown GMO free and use the most sustainable ingredients we can source.
What Makes Us Different
Our approach is to design landscapes that are created to last for generations.
Built with Community and future environmental sustainability in mind
Bee pollination is a vital factor of plant fertilization.

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.
