Urban rooftop gardens

Had a great tour of a roof top garden on the westside today. Designed by Kevin Songer, the roof for Breaking Ground Contracting is a fully integrated polyculture roof, bringing together food producing plants and pollinator attracting flowers that ensure the continued regrowth of both. See more at

A stones throw from I-10 and in full summer sun, this garden thrives off the condensation lines from the surrounding HVAC units.

The visiting bees come for the the flowers and help pollinate to create things like tomatoes, peppers and eggplant.

What would you grow on your rooftop?
