What Houzz contributors are saying:

Designed and built in seven months on a $150,000 budget, the community-run roof garden was created by designer Nicole Kistler, landscape architect Eric Higbee, the community of Queen Anne/Uptown and the P-Patch Program of Seattle.
Community gardens. One more piece of the AIA survey is the desire for community gardens. Using open space for flowers, vegetables and other plantings not only allows vacant lots or rooftops to be used beneficially, but it lets neighbors meet one another, fostering connections in what are typically seen as anonymous locales.See more about the garage-top garden shown

An old Airstream as a tool shed in a garden. I like the clean, futuristic lines of the trailer. The idea could work out in a private garden, too.

A group of Seattle designers, neighbors and city officials have upped the community gardening ante with the city's first large-scale community garden on top of a 50-year-old parking garage. Somewhere out there, Joni Mitchell is smiling. Eating local and preserving green spaces are healthy trends, but connecting with neighbors is what really makes community gardening special. The project, called UpGarden, takes this experience to the rooftop, creating a 30,000 square-foot showcase for how an edible landscape — and new neighbor connections — can emerge from a parking lot.
