The Edible Roof Garden

The Edible Roof Garden

Behind central Reading's only renewable energy installation lies the RISC edible roof garden; a forest garden complete with over 120 species of edible and medicinal trees, shrubs, vines and plants from around the globe. Fed by stored rainwater gathered from the roof, pumped by energy generated by solar cells and wind collectors on the chimneys; this urban oasis is fed by paper and food waste compost from the RISC offices and is one of the nicest places in Reading for a picnic!


RISC,35-39 London Street,Reading,RG1 4PS
