House Finance committee advances rooftop farm bill

House Finance committee advances rooftop farm bill | Growing Food | Scoop.it

Lawmakers being urged to give rooftop greens a try.

 

"They are looking to use most of that for a rooftop farm to create a more interactive environment for the lawmakers," said Alan Joaquin, of FarmRoof, a sustainable small business build around rooftop gardens.

FarmRoof®'s curator insight, February 23, 2013 3:21 PM

In my opinion, a rooftop farm would greatly benefit the Public by causing a “Ripple Effect” on our legislative system. Imagine a rooftop farm at the State Capitol growing hyper-local organic produce for Lawmakers and Staffers and being distributed through an on-site Community Supported Agriculture, or “CSA” program. Our lawmakers and their families would enjoy healthy, sustainable produce that was grown literally above their heads. This intimate relationship with urban farming would have a profound positive impact on how our lawmakers would look at issues that concern agriculture, healthy eating, sustainable development, and environmental stewardship. A rooftop farm at the Capitol has the potential to define, shape and inspire laws that would be beneficial to the People of Hawaii for generations to come.
