Rooftop Gardens are Super Rad.

I often wonder what the world would be like if small changes in direction had taken place at key moments in history. What if we zigged instead of zagging?

The Dude fancies himself a gardener. Truth be told – or just listen to Mrs. Dude – my growing success rate is probably 50/50…according to Mrs. Dude, worse.

Gardening is tough. So many variables to work with. I’m a believer that it’s more of an art than a science, with A LOT of trial and error. At least that’s what I tell myself.

As I fumble through my weekend gardening craft, I am amazed by the awesomeness growing in New York City. Check out the below rooftop garden….more like rooftop farm!

Which leads me to my wondering. What if rooftop gardens were the norm?! Why don’t we all have an awesome garden on our roof?

Houses with flat-top roofs and gardens…genius. Outdoor space, great views, connection to nature, no wasted roof space, insulation, collect rain, collect sun. We totally should have zigged instead of zagging with rooftop gardens!

Here’s an article with some more info about this awesomely rad rooftop garden/farm in Queens.
