Neville Audain has been growing food on the Intervale Green Rooftop Farm since its first season. He is a truly dedicated gardener and with this year’s drought, he is faithfully watering his plot two times per day at least, he says, until the fall rains come.

Neville is a wealth of knowledge about the rooftop farm. He knows when and where the wind blows strongest and he plants his crops along with the moon’s cycles. He says that despite the cold rainy Spring and the summer drought, he’s still managed to harvest 300 pounds of tomatoes from his plot. Its been a good year!
