The Ledge / Ester Restaurant
by Paper Fortress Films

Recover constructed and installed a rooftop farm using sustainably harvested black locust planter beds on the roof of The Ledge—now Ester—Restaurant in Dorchester, Mass. The farm maximizes local material use and water-efficient irrigation technologies to deliver the freshest food possible to the Ester kitchen located directly below.

Urban Food Production

Food production has changed dramatically in the past 70 years, resulting in a number of environmental and health consequences. Jesse and Brendan share a great case study on how a local restaurant moved farming to its roof and restored a neighborhood connection to good food.
