Spectacular Annie

Annie Novak inspiration:

Annie Novak on Eagle Street Rooftop Farm

Lots and lots of vegetables.

Beekeeping on the roof!

[All photographs from The Selby, check out the full spread.]

Unfortunately the bees did not make it through the freezing winter they had, they are now importing a Russian-variety which cope better.  I don’t know how I feel about that, surely feral bees would hive in a well-insulated area, the hives they have seem quite exposed.  But so it is.

The location is Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, where Annie is co-founder and farmer.  She is also founder and director of Growing Chefs, a field-to-fork education program, as well as many other organistaions.  Read her blog to find out a bit more.

Bottom line:  IMAGINE THIS IN CAPE TOWN.
