Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Volunteers and Bernheim Forest employees added some life the roof of the Nucleus Innovation Center.

Thursday, the group planted a living roof on the new eight-story building, located on East Market Street. The new building is part of the University of Louisville and has been under construction for almost a year.

More than a dozen varieties of plants and flowers will be planted on irrigated beds forming a garden that will cover more than half of the roof.

The garden in the sky will take a few days to complete.

The building is expected to be completed by July or August.
