Rooftop Garden Part XXVI

I am still slacking on my blog posts...had to set up a facebook page for SUFCo. and then link it to a Twitter account (what?). Hopefully I will have a chance to catch up on actual useful gardening info. soon...here is a link to an article from the Seattle Times on the Bastille rooftop garden.

Mostly, I am spending all my time advocating for more rooftop gardens around here. Gotta take advantage of the space we have, right? We just have to convince all of the restaurant, office building, and condominium owners...

Hey Colin, you might find this guide interesting. It was published in 2005 by the Pomegranate Center. It discusses the costs and benefits of switching to a green roof, as well as listing resources and materials for doing so. It's called the 'Green Roof Manual'... pomegranate.org/resources/

Thanks Jonathan, that is a cool resource indeed...we need people to keep plugging away on this so these roofs can become a real affordable roofing option...
