Rooftop Remedies is an idea for exchanging skills, knowledge and resources about urban farming and sustainable energy on a local and international level.

It is about creating distributed systems based on real social networks to create a base of local resilience, in the form of shared food and energy.

Examples

Small groups of people that offer to sustain gardens and small urban farms in their localities in exchange for a part of the fruits of labour. This also fits very well in the wider concept of Circles of Sharing or Exchange City. Contributing as a local farmer gives you also access to other resources.
