April 1, 2010: City and Community Join Forces to Grow Food on Roof Tops
Worm bins and compost rich soil are reaching unexpected heights these days. The Mayor and City Council declared 2010 "The Year of Urban Agriculture." The idea is to expand agriculture in the urban core. Rooftops at the Centennial Apartments in Belltown may not seem the most logical site for 40 square feet of food gardens, but it’s a win for the neighborhood. The pilot project even has the support of Seattle Public Utilities. Martha Baskin has our story.
