Inspired by the current presence of the virus, isolation and uncertainty, but also by the lingering environmental and social challenges that cities face, the rooftop and balcony gardening project can offer many benefits to the individual, community, city, and beyond. A city-led project would improve the air-quality, improve biodiversity, retain rainwater, reduce energy consumption in buildings and total GHG emissions. By devising a model of implementation and sharing the necessary materials such as wood, gravel, seeds or gardening equipment, the city would encourage citizens to cooperate and arrange when arranging their gardens on their roofs, terraces, balconies, windows and loggias. At the same time, by building their own gardens and enjoying its cultivation, newly created gardeners would feel more fulfilled and certainly eat healthier.
