Why we love this one woman's American dream

Clutch Made loves this Bushwick greenery initiative that reflects our ideals of made in the U.S.A and emphasises how a dream can become a reality with a little bit of help....

Yemi Amu grew up in Lagos Nigeria, where she feels there was a much stronger connection to produce and livestock. After moving to New York she was inspired by the idea of aquaponics and studied Health and Nutrition Education at Colombia to bring this rooftop garden to life.

Oko Farms is a small Brooklyn rooftop space with a 2,500 square foot aquaponic system. The symbiotic system acts as housing for fish and plant varieties and has been recycling its water since 2013. The concepts of using fish waste to fertazlise plants in water creates a cycle of sustainability. Oko Farms also allows city-dwellers to learn about agriculture and promotes a healthy city lifestyle.
