TN govt introduces roof to garden schemes for people | News7 Tamil Subscribe : Facebook: Twitter: Website: News 7 Tamil Television, part of Alliance Broadcasting Private Limited, is rapidly growing into a most watched and most respected news channel both in India as well as among the Tamil global diaspora. The channel’s strength has been its in-depth coverage coupled with the quality of international television production. While in Chicago, we stopped at Uncommon Ground, a restaurant in the Edgewater neighborhood that focuses on seasonal, regional and organic food and boasts the first certified organic rooftop farm in the nation! As we toured the roof, we learned about the benefits of super local produce, the challenges of farming so far off the ground and got to sample some honey from the restaurant’s rooftop bee colony!

    Excellent presentation of a fantastic concept. There's hope for America yet! Every big city should have 100s of these gardens.
