Almost Nobody Knows This Secret Rooftop Garden In Georgia Even Exists
What would you say if we told you that one of the most sustainable buildings in Georgia also has a secret rooftop garden that nobody really knows about? The Geography/Geology building received a green roof in the 1960s in order to temper the climate and buffer high temperatures. Now, decades later, this flourishing rooftop garden has been run by students and volunteers alike, providing sustainability and fresh food at every turn.
