If you don’t have a yard . . .

Digging the rooftop gardens.

Green roofs are great because they turn an impermeable source of run-off water (i.e., a conventional roof) into a permeable surface that makes use of rain water.  Urban green roofs, like other green spaces, can reduce the urban heat island effect.  Finally, if you plant edibles, you have a source of healthy, local food!  Definitely a win-win situation.
