Two Brooklyn residents founded a pop-up farm knowing the land could be developed and they would have to move.

| September 17, 2013

From Gardenista:

North Brooklyn Farms is a pop-up oasis of kale, tomatoes, and eggplants growing in a former parking lot near the Williamsburg Bridge in the shadow of a defunct Domino Sugar factory. Built on pallets, the raised beds can be lifted and moved to a new location if the property owners develop the 8,000-square-foot lot.

Knowing the garden's site could be developed next year, the farm's founders, Ryan Watson and Henry Sweets, came up with the plan for a pop-up edible garden.
