Farm Your Roof

It’s a straightforward plan designed specifically for commercial building owners in Chicagoland.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Omni Ecosystems

Founded in 2006, Omni and its team have developed and tested a unique green roof system. 

The Omni system is ultra-lightweight and farm-able. 

The installation includes a fully integrated irrigation element.

With regular maintenance, an Omni green roof stays lush and radiates beauty far beyond the expectations of an ordinary sedum rooftop.

Most importantly, an Omni installation meets all green roof requirements for architects, owners and developers seeking building permits in the City of Chicago.

The Roof Crop

Simply put, The Roof Crop leases and operates rooftop farms.

Once building developers have met their green roof requirement by installing an Omni system, they can turn to The Roof Crop for a truly maintenance-free green roof that pays for itself.

The Roof Crop, acting as “roof tenant,” will oversee farm operations, including irrigation and general green-roof maintenance. The company will pay you, the landlord, an annual rental fee. In exchange, The Roof Crop will harvest and distribute all crop yield.

 
 

The Net Result

  • Significantly improve the environmental impact of their building project
