The Brooklyn Botanic Garden Gets a 10,000 Square Foot "Roof Meadow" (Video)

The Brooklyn Botanic Garden Gets a 10,000 Square Foot "Roof Meadow" (Video)

Brooklyn Botanic Garden /Video screen capture This autumn, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden transformed the roof of its new Visitor Center into a wild meadow, complete with 40,000 plants. The 10,000 square foot space was put together in a month that included soil dispersal, planting and watering. This timelapse video condenses that process into two minutes (and 3,600 individual photographs), and also features a reminder of the surprise snowfall that hit the East Coast right before Halloween. The rooftop meadow is part of the BBG's "Campaign for the Next Century ," an effort to revamp and enhance nearly every part of the Garden. The Visitor Center is due to open in mid-May.
