Green Roof Raising

Last weekend I helped build two green roofs on campus at American University. Green roofs in Washington D.C. help prevent water pollution from entering the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers and eventually the Chesapeake Bay. Details on the District of Columbia’s green roof incentives are online here.

Channel 9 News interviewed me about the project.

It took about fifty volunteers five days to build 2200 square feet of living roof. It was a lot of fun.

Loads more photos on Facebook.

    Really apreciate the effort you put into this.

  3. It is getting increasingly popular. I guess it is the only roof that can actually absorb 30 mm of rain a day and not flooding the streets below.
