Sky Gardens: Where Cool Green Meets Lofty Blue

Sky Gardens: Where Cool Green Meets Lofty Blue

- Our project of the week is the Banyan Street Manor Rooftop Farm & Vertical Gardens built in 2012 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Located in the Kalihi section of Honolulu, Banyan Street Manor debuted the first USDA Certified Organic rooftop farm on top of an affordable housing project along with three vertical gardens. A variety of Asian herbs and more than 20 types of produce including tomatoes, lettuce, eggplant, and green beans will be grown on the roof. 40% of the produce will be grown free of charge to building residence and the remaining produce will be sold to Whole Foods Market and other local grocery stores.
