May - Tour Green Roofs of San Francisco
...Take a walking tour of some of our cities most verdant rooftops!
Graze the Roof is an edible, community-produced vegetable garden on the rooftop of Glide Memorial Church, a progressive church and nonprofit located in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco.
Graze the Roof features lightweight (upcycled) raised garden beds made from milk crates; a worm composting system and an educational mural which ties the whole project together. Glide youth and volunteers from throughout the Bay Area maintain the garden and host monthly tours and workshops.
Join us for our community workdays, workshops and rooftop garden tours!
Additionally, we are looking for dedicated volunteers/interns/creationists to play a leading role in the development and continued success of Graze the Roof. There are a wide range of opportunities available - from hands on gardening and construction activities to community outreach, workshop facilitation, gardening education, fundraising and research and development.
If would like to be a dedicated volunteer, please contact Graze the Roof's project manager, Lindsey Goldberg at: email@example.com for more information and to RSVP for one or more workdays/workshops.
