MayaDo you find yourself gazing out across the urban landscape imagining a roofscape of lush green and food producing gardens? Roof gardens are being implemented as an attractive and effective response to the urban challenges by providing numerous environmental and health benefits. In this workshop we will showcase inspiring roof gardens from around the world, discuss the many benefits, introduce various methods and technologies and demonstrate how to build your own self-watering container so you can be a part of roofscape transformation here in the Bay Area. Join GFE and Maya Donelson from Graze the Roof as we take urban agriculture to the next level! (Image of Maya Donelson by Peter DaSilva for the NY Times)
