Rooftop gardening, as a hobby, in Bangladesh is an alternative way to meet the demand for plantation mainly in cities as the amount of usable land currently is decreasing in the country.
Roof gardeners from Bangladesh said the production of fresh fruits and vegetables of the rooftop garden can increase nutritional status of household members of the urban citizens and it will make a positive contribution to the environment.
They added that such a type of farming can be a source of income and it can create biodiversity in the nature, through the presence of different kinds of birds and the rarest species of insects.
Agricultural experts said the success of a rooftop garden requires a strong roof and a proper water disposal system.
