Downtown building offers rooftop garden harvest

Aug. 20, 2018

The residents of the downtown Boyce-Greeley Building are showing their green thumbs.

They have quite the harvest in the second year of their community garden, which is on the roof of the building at 11th Street and Phillips Avenue.

“They’ve been such a wonderful way to create a sense of community amongst the people in the building,” co-owner Ivy Dandar said.

Some neighbors hosted a corn boil with part of the harvest already, and the rest of the produce is beginning to be picked. The bounty includes tomatos, chard, beets, peppers, beans, corn, sunflowers, strawberries, melons, cucumbers, squash, kohlrabi, broccoli, onions, rhubarb and herbs.

The best part? They’re giving it away.

Produce will be in the lobby of the building today, and more harvests are expected in the coming weeks.

“No need to pay – it’s all compliments of the tenants of the Boyce-Greeley Building as a goodwill gesture,” Dandar said. “We have plenty for ourselves and hope others can enjoy the fruits of their labors!”
