You might not expect to find a farm atop an NYC office block. How do you run a farm all the way up there anyway?

Market gardening and city allotments are common in the UK, or Cuba, where small-scale city farming has long been a feature of society. But given the extreme centralisation and homogenisation of food production in the USA, this film makes for an interesting insight into agricultural subculture in the Big Apple.
