    Great idea. I remember my friend Ellie telling me that a friend of hers was working on a project to put gardens on the rooftops of buildings in NYC as both an aesthetic improvement, a way to help keep buildings cooler in winter and to improve air quality. I don’t know if the project ever got funded but I always thought it was a fantastic idea.
