Garden on the roof


This garden stands of the roof of a new public building in my street. The building is a gym and they had this great idea to put a garden on top of it. This garden is one of Paris "shared gardens" as we call it (Jardins partagés) where you can grow your own little part of land with vegetables. Information about these "shared gardens" is available on Paris website (here) but in French only.

Interesting and nice. Thanks for sharing!
Yes, I have been looking up, when walking in Paris.... and wondered about what it looks like. I have seen some trees high up there on several roofs.

It is a wonderful idea (for nature and humans).

Everyone loves having their own little plot of land to grow things. Fair days here always find tons of people at garden centers buying something to plant. Maybe we're genetically hardwired to want to dig our hands into soil.

I have always loved this concept.
