Although DC received a healthy serving of rain last Thursday, a team of experienced and beginner gardeners showed up in Bread for the City’s SE Center rooftop garden to help get the garden in shape!

It’s easy to understand the intangible benefits up on Bread for the City’s roof, surrounded by greenery. The tomato vines in one patch are a tempting shade of red. Next to them, bees are buzzing in a patch of flowers not far from the currently out-of-use bee colonies. Cacti, eggplants, and dozens of other crops round out the display.
“Staff eat lunch up there, do yoga up there sometimes, we have open hours in the garden,” Kristen Kozlowski, associate director of development for Bread for the City, told Aquicore. “It’s a beautiful, safe, green space.”
