On Solid Ground

April 23, 2009

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 plants for her gardening & design business, while I will hone in on cut flowers for this season’s weddings and events. ‘Tho I’m sure some delectable edibles will too soon sprout.

 

Again, keep posted. It’s going to be a good green one out there on the asphalt.

  1. Congratulations! Looking forward to following the garden progress. I spy another fun green thing in the photo – is that the new Lila B. Mobile?
