Lila B. adds a green touch to the tables while Blue Bottle fires up their espresso machine – for this special event on the roof.

Rainy Day Planting

May 3, 2009

Planting Day #1

Our first day of planting was perfect. The rain lightly fell as our plants moved from their 4” containers into their new homes: 15 gallon containers.

Very soon they’ll be giving our next door neighbors, including a couple of car repair shops, a nice green view!

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…
