Green Roofs from the Ground Up
Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania
Thu, May 17, 2012, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Tickets: 25 members, 30 non-members
What is a green roof? Is it really green? What are the benefits of living roofs? Where can I see one? Join Arboretum staff for answers to these questions during an illustrated lecture and viewing, from the ground, of the Arboretum's two newly planted living roofs. As an integral part of the Morris Arboretum's new platinum LEED certified Horticulture Center, two different types of green roofs have been installed at Bloomfield Farm. Learn the differences between the two and the types of plants each contain. Green roof history, construction, and benefits will be discussed, as well as the positive impact living roofs contribute to our urban environment. Louise is the horticulturist in charge of planting and maintaining the Arboretum's green roofs. Meet at the new Horticulture Center. Enter Bloomfield Farm (across Northwestern Avenue from the public garden entrance). Follow the signs to the Hort Center.
