The location. The urban Uptown/lower Queen Anne neighborhood previously lacked any community gardening space. A voter-passed measure in 2008 prioritized the neighborhood for a community garden.Affordable open lots aren't the easiest to find, so the project's creators looked up — to a parking structure at the Seattle Center. Working with a structural engineer was key, says Higbee.

My husband had this idea a long time ago. Why not use the space? More apartment buildings and restaurants should consider this idea because fresh grown is more flavorful.

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.
