The Kerry Everbright City, a mixed-use complex near the Shanghai Railway Station, has turned three of its rooftops into vegetable gardens, covering almost 300 square meters.
Nearly 40 vegetables are planted there, including radishes, cucumber, lettuce and pumpkin.
Environmentally-friendly gardening techniques are also used. Rainwater is stored to irrigate plants and coffee grounds collected from the complex’s cafes are used as mulch.
Employees from the property’s management company and sanitation workers from the local Beizhan Subdistrict have also joined hands to make the gardens possible.
