Our workshop is Home of the Victory Garden Initiative Rooftop Garden.

Gardening is reaching a new level of popularity, and urban gardens are finding their way to patios, front yards, even rooftops. Community Building and Restoration is working with our communities to achieve greater sustainability and has branched out into the area of urban farming, and the carpentry necessary for it. We design and build a variety of raised-bed gardens, irrigation systems, greenhouses, arbors, trellises, garden sheds, and other garden accoutrements and enhancements. We are in this business for the long haul and will work tirelessly to make sure our community thrives long into the future.

Rooftop Gardens:

Community Building and Restoration has launched a non-profit corporation, Community Growers, which has installed a commercial rooftop vegetable farm on the roof of the Community Building shop and warehouse off of East Capitol Dr. This farm is host to what may be the world's first rooftop CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm. We have consulted on other rooftop gardening projects and would be thrilled to help you on yours, as well as on more conventional, "terrestrial," growing projects.

Enclosed Greenhouses:

We can build for you a greenhouse, whether large and fancy or small and simple, whether an architectural masterpiece or one that is purely functional.

Unique Garden Sheds:

If you are looking for a shed to store your gardening supplies, but want it to blend into your home and backyard, consider having a custom shed built for your needs.

Going green doesn't just start in your backyard.
