Organic at high altitudes

(issue no. 132/2010 / November 18, 2010)

 

 

Lettuce, chicory, arugula, tomatoes, beans, zucchini and cabbage-grown on the roof. A condominium in Turin's San Salvario neighbourhood is the first in the city to feature a rooftop vegetable garden where residents can grow their own organic foods. Located on via Goito, the novel rooftop garden has given rise to a workshop, Our Secret Garden, where locals can learn and get advice on starting their own rooftop gardens. Three young architects had the winning idea, locating the garden-laboratory on top of a three-story building from the 1800s.
