It was in 2014 that three young people decided to transform the 600m2 (717.6 square yards) rooftop of Copenhagen’s oldest car auction house into an urban garden where vegetable fields and greenhouses would be cultivated and chickens, rabbits and bees would be raised. With the help of 100 neighbours and volunteers, ØsterGRO was born and became Denmark’s first roof farm. For two seasons, Stedsans was housed on the rooftop serving its guests with dishes prepared with ØsterGRO’s organic ingredients. When it moved to Sweden, GroSpiseri took its place. The long wooden table, the experienced chefs, and the fresh ingredients can still be found on Copenhagen’s coolest rooftop, so make sure to stop by and taste their delicious meals.
