Maya (May-ah) Donelson, Project Organizer for SF Glide's 'Graze the Roof' garden project, invited us out for a look-see and to offer feedback on the space.
What a fabulous, inspiring project this is. Maya is a creative, resourceful woman, who has come up with amazing resource solutions for growing roof-side. She endeavors, with the help of Glide's youth, to provide fresh, organic, local food to Glide's food program kitchens.
Some of the creative resource alternatives I refer to include re-using shelving (for legs) milk crates -- those wretches of vinyl-storing notoriety -- (as containers), deconstructed pallets (as finished siding), and finding a way, with the help of some cleverly placed metal sheeting, to catch the irrigation run-off to be redirected back to the plants. (see pictures)
I highly encourage you to support Maya's and Glide's efforts either financially or via volunteering (or both!). Maya's contact info is below:
