Bridging technology, community, and a love for local, real food.

Urban Farming Campus

Urban Farming Campus

Square Roots brings together technology, entrepreneurship, and a love for local, real food to empower leaders in urban farming. Our farming campus is located in Brooklyn, New York, at the former Pfizer factory—now home to a host of NYC food businesses. Real food farmers grow local, tasty, food inside hydroponic, controlled-climate container farms located in the parking lot. Each container can yield more than 50 lbs of leafy greens each week and only needs about eight gallons of water a day.

At the heart of Square Roots is our Next-Gen Farmer Training program, which creates opportunities for more people to become farmers—and future leaders in urban farming—through a year-long commitment on the Square Roots team. No experience is necessary to apply—just the passion and dedication to bring local, real food to people in cities and to connect with consumers and the community throughout NYC.
