Rooftop Garden Featured on GreenRoofs.com

“The Gary Comer Youth Center roof garden functions as an outdoor classroom, enriching a variety of mathematics, horticultural, culinary and business courses that help to prepare students for college and careers. The diverse educational platform also serves community members ages 8-80+ who contribute and partake in the greenroof garden’s learning programs and activities throughout the year. The Gary Comer Youth Center produces 1,000 lbs of fruits and vegetables annually. Every day, 175 children at the center are fed from the rooftop crops; excess is distributed among four local restaurants and is also sold at a local farmers market.”
