Just after finishing my earlier post, I suddenly realised that M had told me about this rooftop garden beside my house and that it is only opened on Sunday mornings which is when the residents came to take care of the plants. I immediately grabbed my camera and headed down to the multi-storey carpark where it was located.
I guessed this garden was not publicised at all from the word “soft launch” in the picture. But they have their reasons why, I think, of which I will explain later.
All the grasses were packed in black plastic containers that covered the entire level.
I saw M talking to the residents managing this garden. Unfortunately, they were already packing up to leave so I can’t go around taking pictures and learning about the plants they grow there. They harvested some vegetables and donated them to the Church of the Nativity and Blessed Virgin Mary (in the background).
This garden is out of bounds and kept locked and monitored by CCTVs to prevent people from coming in to steal the vegetables which are meant to be grown for the needy. Good way to make use of this place since it is unlikely that anyone will park the car on this extremely hot place.
