Urban Roof Garden Info < 2 of 6 >

The large, partially-enclosed roof garden serves as outdoor classroom to supports youth horticultural programs; food plants are grown, harvested and used in culinary arts classes that take place in the building’s teaching kitchen. Skylights dot this rooftop landscape to bring natural daylight into the gym and cafeteria below. Students living in a neighborhood plagued by guns and drugs are provided an outdoor urban sanctuary where they can learn in a safe and relaxing environment.
