Students enrolled in the Foothill College Environmental Horticulture & Design Program created Beyond & Above, an award-winning garden design vignette that was showcased at the popular San Francisco Garden Show. Foothill's Beyond & Above educational entry captured the expo's People's Choice and Garden Creator awards. Designed, constructed and produced by Foothill students and faculty, Beyond & Above as named the top garden by a distinguished panel of award-winning green industry leaders.
Constructed of common materials and sustainably planted, the Foothill College Beyond & Above rooftop garden was designed with modular pieces that fit in even the smallest spaces. As practical as it is beautiful, it invites you to rediscover a forgotten asset of your home, a room above the hustle and bustle, beyond the ordinary—a space that is beyond and above.
