We all share many of the same essential needs such as the desire for growth, the craving for community and the lust for beer. Thousands Win, an urban farm in Brooklyn, has managed to meet these needs by developing a lightweight vine-growing system that produces hops on the rooftops of New York City. Driven by the desire to grow things, develop community and do whatever the hell they want, Caleb Freese and Julian Hensarling have cultivated a rooftop hops farm that seeks to inspire the growth of local community farms and gardens that have positive impacts on the environment and health. But the bottom line, as Freese says, is “trying to grow more shit in Brooklyn.”
