The Garden

The Eversheds Sutherland Roof Garden is a hidden gem atop an award-winning environmental building. The green roof of this law firm features sedum and wild plants, which attract a variety of wildlife. Two volunteer gardeners, Marta and Julie, experiment with the crops and varieties they grow, including bee-friendly plants to provide food for the bees residing in two Eversheds’ hives. The garden has won City in Bloom and other awards, including the Most Innovative in Design Award, and the Outstanding Food Growing, Commercial, and Gold Awards for the vegetable garden and the green roof. Marta and Julie have won individual Golden Pollinator Awards.
