    Some of your urban listeners may be interested in starting a personal or community garden, but not know where to begin. This script provides details on how to start a rooftop garden – designing it so it will not be too heavy for the roof, choosing crops that work best in shallow gardens, and watering and fertilizing to get the best yield. The techniques described in the script can be used to grow food on other concrete slabs, such as a driveway, sidewalk, or a section of a parking lot.
