tons of vegetables

ANMA / F – Corporate Foundation ANMA offers an inventory of what could grow on our flat roofs, in the sun and above the various urban pollution.
The Urban Agriculture micro-exhibition shows some recent experiences from around the world. It also addresses the case of intramural Paris by asking this almost absurd question, but which sounds like a challenge: How many tons of fruits and vegetables would grow on our roofs and how many Parisians could we feed?
