5) Gorgeous Gardens


Many restaurants are green thumbing their way through nurturing chef gardens that go far beyond a planter box of parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. Union Market’s Bidwell sources 60% of its menu from its rooftop garden (pictured). Restaurant Eve’s 2,000 SF garden is also impressive. There are even start-ups capitalizing: Love & Carrots installs and helps maintain restaurant gardens. Its clients include The Red Hen, Big Bear Café, and Bacio Pizzeria. “We are glad that growing edibles, native flowers, and perennials is catching on as a way to sustainably beautify and strengthen our local urban foodshed,” Megan Rynne from Love & Carrots tells us.
