Here’s a fun little article about a fabulous cafe in the Mission…one of my favorites.

In addition to the luscious espresso, dynamic lunch, hip and comfortable interior, you can catch some of our flower work here too….

Thanks to our friend at Radio Africa & Kitchen we had a trusty truck to haul our soil.

1 Yard. 2 Truck Loads. 30+ containers full of 3 different kinds of soil mixes from 2 bay area suppliers.

We are ready to plant!

 

On Solid Ground

Our ideas grew too fast, too big, and off the roof right on to an empty parking lot!
Our new home.

 

our new home -- and our new friend betty

The good news: the Roof is Still Green. The Workspace ltd roof garden continues to flourish!

Meanwhile, Emily (from Boxwood Olive), and I (Baylor from Lila B.) moved into a big old parking lot. It offers us ground level access (phew! 50+ stairs, 80+ containers, and 6 yards of soil was daunting to not only our legs but to the roof!), 2 dogs, a large gate, plenty-o-sun, hip company (and a hip company!), water access and more.

 

Thanks to Lauren, owner of Kaboom Productions, for inviting us in. Her office building occupies a large lot in the Dogpatch area of San Francisco, CA. We’ll be greening up her office while growing our wares.

 

Emily will focus on sowing seeds and growing…
