WHAT IT SHOWS: Alberto Favela, right, garden coordinator at SEDUVI (Secretaria de Desarollo Urbano y Viviendo), or Secretary of Urban Living and Development, inspects the health of lettuce seedlings in the expansive roof garden of the government building in Mexico City, Mexico on June 18, 2008. The seven year old hydroponic installation, the first of its kind in Mexico, is responsible for most of the flowers used in Mexico City's expansive parks. All employees in the building are free to work one hour a day on the roof garden.
