UTOPIA Organisation, Flying Gardens (2015 Impact Grant)

A view of the completed rooftop garden with the city in the background.

The Flying Gardens project is a youth-led initiative that constructs gardening rooftops on buildings in the most underprivileged areas of Tripoli, Tabbaneh, North Lebanon. These special spaces grow food while providing a safe place for children to play and neighbors to congregate. Their impact grant will be used to construct more rooftop gardens and was funded in partnership with Levi Strauss & Co.
