Hola!!!, gracias por visitar mi blog.
Me gusta tu blog, es interesante, yo trabajo con niños de 10 a 13 años y pienso que para ayudar a crear una conciencia medio ambiental en las personas, hay que comenzar por la educación, en nuestro futuro, en nuestros niños.
Acá en Chile cuesta mucho, pero no imposible yo he logrado muchos cambios en mis niños y niñas.
Un gran abrazo de Santiago de Chile

Thanks for stopping by. I very much enjoyed your article on rooftop gardens. I have been interested in rooftop gardens (first seen in NYC) from a purely aesthetic standpoint. I started thinking about them from an ecological standpoint when I read an article about how Atlanta's city government was considering building more rooftop gardens to counteract its large expanses of concrete -- more than any other city in the USA -- and which has contributed to it being one of the hottest!

Keep up the good work! -- Virginia
