In Gardening on Rooftops, Dr. Martin Price describes low cost, low technology, lightweight methods to produce food on rooftops and other locations above the ground. With growing global urbanization, it is vital for food production to be brought to urban settings. These technologies are also helpful for refugee settings where there is little land dedicated to gardening. The techniques explained can be done at a fraction of the expense as other technologies and they do not require specially engineered buildings to make sure that the roof can handle the weight of the soil. Gardens can even be grown on the edge of a tin roof of a shanty.
