Gardens in high places


I sat in a beautiful room in a former factory in Manhattan yesterday and talked about plants and about how to get trees to high flors (which reminded me of this SoHo garden, one I was rather fond of) and about Draconian Swiss recycling laws.

These water towers stood guard beyond the windows. Hopefully, by early summer, there'll be some roses and herbs and, well, generally, a garden, too. Inbetween the room where I sat and the water towers, that is.

  2. Roof top spaces are so full of promise- your roof top farm is proof of that! Can't wait to hear all about this project Marie.

  3. I recall looking up at some of the rooftops that showed winter skeletons and wondering how they would look in summer-green....:-)
