Published by Alternatives and the Rooftop Gardens Project, the Guide to Setting Up Your Own Edible Rooftop Garden discusses the planning, construction, and management of a rooftop container garden. Specifically, the guide is split into six chapters including project definition, choice of site, setting up the garden, coordination of gardening activity, health choices and a detailed technical guide on rooftop container gardening. After five seasons, the authoring team developed this guide for both individuals and institutions interested in education, social, and environmental sustainability through the means of urban agriculture.
