Chapter 10 – Rooftop Gardens
The city of Karachi is the 6th most populous city of the world with a population density of over 24,000 people per square kilometer, which means there’s not too much space for gardens… or is there? If one was to plant gardens on all the rooftops around the city, Karachi could potentially turn green in no time. And besides their aesthetic value, rooftop gardens can improve air quality, produce food and lower the overall temperature of the city!
Come and learn the techniques and benefits of planting a rooftop garden at the next session of the Maa Dharti Project and help turn Mother Earth green again!
