Watch Episode 1: Rock Mill Park on the Channel on and YouTube.

Publisher and Editor, Linda S. Velazquez said, “The Sky Gardens ~ Greenroofs of the World video series grew naturally out of my previous column Sky Gardens ~Travels in Landscape Architecture. We selected one of my own designs here in Alpharetta for the first episode, and it’s been a true labor of love. I’ve been involved with the Rock Mill Park project since 1999 when I interned as a student of landscape architecture with the City of Alpharetta. I was thrilled when my design for “Celebrating Ecological Design in a Native Landscape” became a reality with the Greenroof Pavilion and Trial Gardens of Rock Mill Park in 2007.

Linda concluded, “So many talented and generous people contributed to this endeavor. Being able to film and share this project built on such an environmentally sensitive and culturally important former Cherokee-owned site is an honor for me.”

On November 8 you can see Episode 1: Rock Mill Park in four 10-minute installments on our home page and the page on our website, and on the channel on YouTube, found at All four videos will be lined up in order for easy viewing.
