Rooftop gardening is the exciting new trend in city landscaping. Learn more about how these out-of-sight spaces work by taking a virtual tour with Annie Novak, author of "The Rooftop Growing Guide: How to Transform Your Roof into a Garden or Farm" and head farmer at Greenpoint, Brooklyn's own Eagle Street Rooftop Farm. Whether you're gardening up above or down below - or aspiring to get started - this program will give you the tools you need to "get growing!"

Annie Novak is the head farmer and cofounder of the nation's first commercial green roof vegetable farm, the Eagle Street Rooftop Farm atop Broadway Stages in Brooklyn. She is the manager of the Edible Academy at the New York Botanical Garden, and founder and director of Growing Chefs, a field-to-fork food education program. She lives in New York City.
