good roof garden for Otago uni

It is great to see this type of innovation - the more the merrier i say.

From the ODT
"The University of Otago's new psychology building has a roof garden contributing to the building's rainwater collection and recycling system.
Row upon row of native plants will purify rainwater before it is delivered to tanks in the basement and recycled, to flush toilets and irrigate other gardens."
When you go to any of our cities and see all the wasted space - space that could be used to grow food, grow trees, recycle water and so on - it really brings home the potential of what we could do with a little imagination and focus.
