V-roof Rooftop Vegetable Garden
Our project fits in with the policy of Shanghai’s Municipal Government to promote promotes rooftop gardens. The project is also sponsor-friendly. We have already secured RMB 300,000 in sponsorship from the Shanghai NITA Construction Landscape Company, and are soliciting funds from a number of other prospective partners, including the Shanghai Science and Technology Commission, to supplement the assistance provided through E-idea. A property management firm called Shanghai Yidian is providing us with the use of roofs in the Yihong Technology Zone for the first phase of the project, and landscape designers and technology consultants have offered their services. Other partners have pledged to donate seedlings, wood, plant containers and irrigation equipment, while the Shanghai Creative Industry Association will provide space for us to promote our work at the 2011 Shanghai International Creative Industry Festival.
