Following the permaculture precept that each element should have many functions, see this article from Building Sustainable Lifestyles, Your Home’s Most Underused Resource, the Roof  showing new uses for the urban roof. I particularly like the bee keeping idea and the gardens made in re-used kiddie pools.  Come to think of it, you could probably start a lasagna garden and create a compost pile in a kiddie pool too.
