Amazing Panoramic View of Rooftop Farm In Toronto

TreeHugger has noted before that Rooftop farms are the growing thing. One of the first we showed was on top of the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto, where executive chef David Garcelon grows tomatoes, edible pansies, thyme, lavender, chives and different kinds of basil. (And he raises bees, too)

Toronto photographer Tony Makepeace is the Panoramaist for the Torontoist, and visited the roof. The technology lets you walk around, look at the plants and see Toronto. Try it here at Torontoist.
