hot sauce

To put it mildly, Brooklynite Jolene Collins has a red-hot passion for Sriracha. It started at age 15 when the then-teen smeared the hot sauce all over her tuna sandwich and potato chips.

Picture this: a sprawling, lush, green garden filled with seasonal vegetables and herbs as far as the eye can see. While an upstate farm might be the first place that comes to mind, we’re talking about Brooklyn Grange, a 2.5 acre rooftop farm operation in Brooklyn and Queens.

 The largest rooftop soil farm out there, Brooklyn Grange produces over 40,000 pounds of organically-cultivated produce each year.
