How do I make a green house out of a 3 sided cement block wall?

The old trailer we lived in burned to the ground (11/28/2017) and left a long 5 foot high block wall. It's probably 60 feet long and 11 feet wide with one end open. We are now living in a large travel trailer & are too broke and old to rebuild so will continue living in the travel trailer. The block wall runs the length of the travel trailer(& longer) & we would like to make it into a large green house by adding some kind of roof. We live in a windy area at 3500 ft. elevation. It's considered high desert (Joshua trees) What do you recommend that we should build the roof out of? I don't have a camera to take a picture & the computer I'm using is an old one that was given to us after our home burned.

    Sorry to hear of your situation.. maybe use tarps n get buckets of water under the tarp roof so when sun is out it can create humidity in it!!?

    I'm very sorry you're having so much trouble. I'd like to help but need a little more information. Do you want to use it to grow things? extra living space? It would make it easier if we knew a little more. For example, if you just want coverage so you can grow plants, and not have to see through the roof, you could just use something like a heavier cheese cloth that will keep the plants from direct light and if you put several small holes in the cloth it will help keep the wind from destroying it. There are many different ways to attach it to your cement walls. If that's not it's intended purpose, you'd have to use different material...... give us more info and we'll try to help,
