Did you know that Facebook has a nine-acre rooftop garden?  Even in the wintertime, the garden boasts spectacular views of beautiful plants and interesting structures.  The whole garden was built so that employees could have a space to walk outdoors, since there isn’t much room for them to walk inside the building.

“Ninety percent of the garden consists of native California plants. The 350 trees are a mix of evergreens and deciduous, with a variety of flowering types. The path system that wraps around the roof is one-half a mile long. There are breakout spaces for people to meet at frequent intervals. Resident and migrant birds share the space with employees.”
