A not-for-profit initiative to turn the empty roofs of Auckland high rises into community gardens has begun.
The project, called Kai in the Sky, is the brainchild of 24-year-old Becky Umbers. Staff from local hospitality businesses, which are struggling because of the pandemic, will tend to the gardens and use the produce grown there for free. Would you tend to and use a roof top garden if they were open to the community?
Two double bedroom executive apartment on Level 3 with two bathroom is available for medium-term or long-term, located in The Parc, Viaduct Harbour, Auckland Central Business District (CBD).
Available from end of this month, September 2020.
Ideal for professional, couple or young family, looking for open plan living with large balcony, overlooking park grounds with mature and swimming pool/gym complex. Quiet and secure location with warm afternoon sun.
