Urban Oasis Part 2: Bloom Season

#IfWereHavingCoffee

If we were having coffee i’d tell you welcome back love, last time you were here i gave you a glimpse of the the other side of the rooftop. Today you get to take a look at the part of the entire blueprint structure of the Urban Juncture Bronzeville redevelopment plan as well as that side of the rooftop in greater detail.

Everything is labeled with arrows for better distinction from this angle which captures 51st from straight above by satellite. Off to the left outlined in blue you’ll see the roof top farm. Notice there are two different arrows indicating where the rooftop farming takes place. The 1st arrow off to the left is the area we will explore today. That street which is Prairie ave, meets the intersection at 51st.

The following visuals will literally take you from the area we started, 51st. side with all produce crops, a few weeks ago, in the east direction of 51st street toward the green line train station back towards the west direction of the train to the Prairie avenue side. This side contains a combination of both flowers and other crops enjoy.

Next week we will visit across the street to the ground level community garden adjacent to the roof top in your bottom right corner here.

This side contained more crops and extends right over the Jerk Shack eatery it supplies fresh crops for.
