Prospect Avenue, The Bronx

Urban garden with raised beds, people chatting and walking, and a backdrop of a building with a fire escape.

Two large planters were connected to the roof downspout to capture rain water from the roof.  Wetland species of native plants were planted in the planters.  Installation of these planters was coordinated with the building owner (not-for-profit organization) which turned this under-utilized backyard to an outdoor community space for the residents.
