We created this urban rooftop micro farm in the Sydney CBD with help from our friends at Garden Life. The 11th story garden features fruit trees, perrenial and annual vegetable and herb gardens, is home to 3 rescued battery hens and a Bee hive care of The Urban BeeHive. We maintain the garden and provide workshops and talks for the staff.
As climate change increases and our urban spaces become even more populated, cities around the world have recognised the benefits of green roofs. These benefits can include; reducing the heat island affect, keeping building temperatures more constant and habitable, improving biodiversity, small scale agriculture, improving property prices and storm water management. There are also psychological benefits of greening our cities to make these spaces more liveable.
