Denver Real Estate: Rooftop Gardening
Another option for gardneing in Denver that earned Denver the Best Place for Urban Farming is rooftop farming. Denver Botanic Gardens built Denver’s first rooftop garden that is publicly accessable and provides resources and best practisies for starting your own rooftop garden. (They also have a children’s rooftop garden that is a great place for your little explorers!)
Rooftop farming in Denver is growing and gaining popularity, but certainly not mainstream. Many of the rooftop farms in Denver are on public buildings (meaning not available for personal gardening), but several apartment complexes in Denver do offer rooftop farming. There are several organizations (Like Growwest) that are working to increase the number of buildings that make use of new rooftop farming techniques because of all of the benefits it provides.
