Rooftop Garden - A Substantial Way to Supply Greens for Restaurants

If you run an urban restaurant, very likely, you have vegetable delivered to your location. Have you considered growing your own vegetables on the roof? This video news shows us how a restaurant in Manhattan can provide enough green supplies for its operations. If every restaurant is taking this green initiative, restaurants will have better controls on the quantitative and quality of vegetable suppliers; cities will also become greener. When I visit Manhattan next time, I will give this restaurant a trial to support its green effort.

  1. I think that this is such a great idea and that it will definitely catch on with more restaurants in the near future. It definitely takes a lot of time to grow your own food for your restaurant and it would be expensive at first to initiate, but I think that eventually it would end up being cheaper than having everything shipped in. This also gives the restaurant owner complete control over the quality and safety of the food they serve. The water system is very efficient because it eliminates plant diseases and pests that can live in the soil. It is very unconventional and would take a lot of monitoring but in the end I think that it would be worth it.

    If more restaurants started doing this it would also cut down on the amount of fossil fuel used to transport food all across the country. Food is shipped all over the country all the time so that people everywhere can have any type of produce all year long, even if it isn’t in season. This would eliminate some of that travel time and help cut down on pollution.

    This is coming at a time when lots of people are supporting local and fresh foods so I think that more restaurants will start to do it as well. I heard about office buildings putting gardens on their roof in order to cool the building down and use less air conditioning so this is another positive aspect of this concept.

  2. I feel that John Moony has a very clever idea with the whole growing your own vegetables concept. I think that it would save him a lot of money to grow his own vegetables and produce rather than going to a local grocery store. His unique idea will probably attract a lot of people in New York City and because it is so original, I feel that the people who go, will definitely be satisfied with Moony’s food. I believe that his salads will be very fresh and clean since he hand picks his own grown greens. It also seems very convenient for his garden to be on the rooftop, however investing in an elevator would probably be a good idea instead of walking those 6 flights of stairs. The only problem I see with his new concept is, being able to maintain his garden under harsh weather conditions. Also, if his new restaurant business attracts many people, he would probably have to hire more employees to assist him in preserving his garden and making sure everything is taken care of, which will increase his labor cost. Aside from that, I think that this new idea of being cost efficient and somewhat eco friendly is a very clever idea.

Do you know where your prospects hang out during the #DeleteFacebook movement?

Facebook used to the cool place where everybody hangs out. Not long ago, Facebook was ranked the most visited website in the world , and the website where Americans spent the most time. Facebook page then became the most popular social media platform for business-to-consumer communications among various types of organizations. In recent years, however, Facebook faced several backlashes toward the platform’s data privacy practices and its CEO. Facebook is experiencing some challenges of maintaining its popularity among internet users, some of whom even call for a #DeleteFacebook movement . I myself, also notice a shift in my teenaged students’ interest in Facebook, even before the #DeleteFacebook backlash. So, if Facebook is no longer the cool place where everybody hangs out, which social media platforms can we use to communicate with our prospective consumers?
