The Garden

The Eversheds Sutherland Roof Garden is a hidden gem atop an award-winning environmental building. The green roof of this law firm is planted with sedum and wild plants which attract a variety of wildlife.

Marta and Julie, our two volunteer gardeners experiment with the crops and varieties they grow.  They grow bee-friendly plants to provide food for the bees who reside in the two Eversheds hives.

The garden has won City in Bloom and other awards including the Most Innovative in Design Award, the Outstanding Food Growing, Commercial, and Gold Awards for the vegetable garden and the green roof and Marta and Julie won individual Golden Pollinator Awards.
