14-08-2009 Grow up and Get Green

Rooftop gardens aren’t a new concept but thanks to a group of young Victorian business leaders, it looks like “green roofing” is set to take off in Australia. The “Growing Up” program encourages residents to cover every rooftop space in inner urban areas with green foliage.

Melbourne Water, Sustainability Victoria and the city of Melbourne have already signed on as key partners in the

program but let’s hope this positive trend catches on nationwide.
