Throughout the year, we will be sharing with you innovative landscape design and garden projects from noted designers. Today, Victoria Taylor, a landscape architect, who also happens to be the sister of our Style Director, Lindsey Taylor, shows us her recent project Parks & Rec, a restaurant's rooftop garden.
In the spring of 2010, Parks & Rec, a rooftop vegetable garden, was established on the roof of downtown Toronto restaurant Parts & Labour. It was designed and operated as a for-profit roof farm by the two of us, landscape architect Victoria Taylor, OALA, and trained chef and permaculturalist Katie Mathieu.
