Agricultural entrepreneur Mohamed Hage is interviewed in this DVD. He is turning the flat rooftops of Montreal’s industrial buildings into fertile farms that feed thousands - and he’s making a profit in the process. Hage, a self-described
technology geek turned urban farmer, explains the genesis and genius of his farms. He and his colleagues have created two rooftop greenhouse farms in Montreal and plan a third in Boston. The farms grow over 100 varieties of vegetables and herbs, and they feed about 5,000 people. The rooftop farms are pesticide-free and use about half the energy of conventional greenhouses. They rely on an army of carefully chosen insects to perform their pest management and they conserve water and preserve precious nutrients by recycling rainwater. Closed captioned. 64 minutes.
