Ballard Green Building Talk #6: An Exploration of Green Roofs
As our cities expand and population grows, the need for urban green space is greater than ever. Yet a vast expanse is sitting right above our heads, unused and unloved. By replanting our rooftops, we can reduce the urban heat island effect, sequester rainfall to reduce the strain on drainage sys- tems, scrub the air of pollutants and CO2, and provide respite from city noise.
This talk, presented by Urban Canopy founders Ben Jarvis and China Bolden, will discuss affordable sustainability practices and projects, including rainwater management, hydroponics, and green roof retrofits. The talk will be followed by a guided tour of the Ballard Library’s own green roof.
Don’t miss this chance to learn how to turn a tarred and shingled dead zone into a lush oasis of life.
