Parking Garage Converted to Community Garden

There was a discussion over on the SRTC Facebook page last week about parking lots and if they are or aren't a blight on the face of downtown Spokane. One of the participants in that discussion sent me this article on how a parking garage built for the 1962 World's Fair is now being changed into a community garden. Pretty cool stuff. Got any good ideas on a structure or area in our community you think would make a nice spot for a garden. We talked about doing a container garden on the patio at our office but somehow it never took off.
