How to Make a Rooftop Garden


We’ve heard a lot about urban farmers lately, but what about apartment dwellers who just want gardens? Get some ideas from Paula Crossfield, a contributing producer for WNYC’s Leonard Lopate Show. She took Lo-Down on a video tour of her rooftop garden in the East Village, hand-built with cedar planks, 1,500 pounds of soil, and Styrofoam peanuts picked up off the street. Watch the video and be even more bummed you don’t have roof access.
