S & N, thanks, my friend. Great idea and can be done in all cities. We should all grow our own food if we can, it is safer and gives great tasting food and can be preserved for the winter months. Saves money too.

N&S. I watched a piece on the news last night that focused on a roof-garden project in Vancouver. It has a big plastic dome on top to keep the temperature warm and tons of trays of hydroponic veg. The trays are routinely rotated so that all of them get adequate sunlight. There is quite a large start-up cost but it's paying off hugely as local restaurants are lining up to buy the produce. I think this would be a great idea for many other buildings in many other cities.

Of course we must thank the politicians for coming up with a great idea. Kudos boys and girls. It started in Ohio. Ohio decided to reclaim many of the neighborhoods that nobody wanted to buy or could afford. Rather than let the drug barons and the other criminal elements have it; they started converting it into sustainable wetlands; parks and gardens. That's where the idea started and hopefully will spread to other states. I don't know what they would do with a city like Detroit that is half empty and the gangs are a major factor.
Let us not forget the group of inner city Chicago mothers who through their own initiative and hard work started converting these empty lots into garden plots. This was to compensate for the fact that the only food available in the stores was the ubiquitous and pervasive micro wave food; fast food; sodas and candies. There are also similar programs in East L.A. and I wish that folks would stop stealing their hard earned crops. Hopefully the USDA won't shut them down although that has happened in several states where the USDA has come in and fined people for growing illegal vegetables or other crops.
