Rooftop gardens

Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver © Fairmont Hotels & Resorts

Every year around $16,000 worth of fruits, vegetables, herbs and honey is produced on the roof of the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel in Vancouver, Canada. There is great potential for rooftop gardens in urban areas that can be used commercially: not only for production but also for marketing purposes.
