Despite the fact that Beijing’s air makes it seem as though “the city is covered by a black wok turned upside down,” rooftop farmers—a rare but determined breed in China—are reaping the harvest. With 15-kilogram marrow fruit and super-ripe melons, it would almost be possible to forget about the smoke-lounge air filling the city. Also featured is an urban-farmer living in Hong Kong, who has been able to find space to farm in one of the most densely crowded cities on earth.
Watch until the end to see the Beijinger’s amateur magician skills. (Although, really, the most impressive magic trick is being able to grow crops in this)
