Rooftop Garden Open House

We’re all really looking forward to Saturday’s Open House for Umbrella’s Rooftop Garden. We’re hopeful we’ll get some good press coverage of the event and the garden. We’re proud of what we’ve done here and want to spread the word and encourage other co-ops and building owners to do something similar on their own roofs.

On Saturday July 18 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm the former Lower East Side squat Umbrella House will host an open house to inaugurate our urban farming project.

At 5:00pm members of Umbrella’s Rooftop Garden Committee will speak briefly about the development of the project.

This 820 square foot intensive green roof serves as a source of fresh produce for building residents, as a means to assist in storm water management, and as a model for other New York City buildings.
