Grow, green roof, grow!
September 9, 2006
Green roof test plot at (from top to bottom) 1 day, 14 days, and 28 days.
For the last 60 days, this low-tech, high-yield prototype food-producing roof module has been in place over a local architecture firm.
We are testing the system to be used for the True Nature Foods Rooftop Victory Gardens. A system like this will help insulate and help moderate temperatures in spaces below, reduce the urban heat island, absorb and filter rainwater, attract beneficial insects, and best of all… produce food for less than $10 per square foot.
