Six people are being interviewed about the garden on the roof of their building.


Jasmine: I loved the idea when Wilber first told me about it. We had lots of meetings with our neighbors, trying to make them understand why it’s good to build a garden on the roof. Now people love coming here, and it’s helped many of us become friends!
