A New Frontier for Gardens

Nomadic Urban Architecture, which perhaps started in the bed of someone's pickup truck has moved onto the tops of city buses!
According to the bustop gardener, benefits include:
• Aesthetic Value
• Mitigation of Urban Heat Island Effect
• Acoustical and Thermal Insulation
• Storm Water Reduction and Management
• CO2 absorbtion
• Habitat Restoration
• Public Education and Recreation
• Reclaiming Forgotten Real Estate
