Rooftop Garden – This is 1,000 sq. feet at the top of the building where CORE is located. Because of the altitude of the roof, it has a different climate, so currently experimentation is occurring to discover which plants would thrive in this space. More perennial herbs and more vegetables are grown here.
The honey bees that live on the rooftop are not intended for production, but, rather, to make the space more comfortable for the bees themselves and as a piece of CORE’s environmental stewardship. The bees often provide a therapeutic effect for persons just watching them in action, and the children attending Kid’s Camps in August become very fascinated in watching them and getting to both see the honey comb and taste the fresh honey.
