San Francisco, California, USA - It's a gorgeous Friday morning and Jennifer McLaughlin is blending a smoothie in her rooftop garden ... Except this garden isn't at her house, it's not permanent, and it's not even on a rooftop.
In fact, it's a temporary oasis of grass, a bench and a few chairs, some young pepper plants, some even younger brown-egged hen chicks, and it has all been installed in a parking space a stone's throw, and in full view of, City Hall.
