‘Graze the Roof’ atop a church in San Francisco

Graze the Roof MURAL children’s book

Graze the Roof is an edible, community-produced vegetable garden on the rooftop of Glide Memorial Church, a progressive church and nonprofit located in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco.

Graze the Roof features lightweight (upcycled) raised garden beds made from milk crates; a worm composting system and an educational mural which ties the whole project together. Glide youth and volunteers from throughout the Bay Area maintain the garden and host monthly tours and workshops.

Graze the Roof MURAL children’s book PUBLISHED!

Artist and Sustainability Educator Jessica Kraft who was the visionary behind Graze the Roof’s unique story-telling mural has published a children’s book inviting youth to engage in the principles behind the extraordinary images!

These books will be purchased and distributed to the 75 youth in the Family, Youth, and Childcare Center’s program who have weekly interaction with the garden!

The book captures the essence of place-based transformation and the urban agriculture movement taking hold in San Francisco and beyond.
