A forest and vegetable garden developed on the roof of the Reading International Solidarity Centre since 2001. There are over 140 plant species, benches and decking made from locally sourced storm-felled timber and a greenhouse. Rainwater is gathered from the roof, irrigation pumps are powered by solar and wind energy and plants are fed with compost made from the food and paper waste from the offices.
