Ecoroofs are rooftop treatments that help the environment in general. They include greenroofs, blueroofs and whiteroofs, we will talk about some of the differences between these eco-roofs and what other "cool" technologies are out there (such as greencloaking and living walls). This 90 minute class will offer a broad overview of benefits, design and construction.
The major focus will be on greenroof systems as they tend to be the most involved and very popular. The five layer greenroof system will be presented as well as information about extensive and intensive greenroofs and monolithic and modular systems.

I have a degree in landscape architecture and my permaculture design certficate. I have designed communities Florida, installed apple orchards in NYC and established a commuinty farm in LIC. I now build greenroofs with the Brooklyn based design build company Future Green Studio. I also teach an in depth Introduction to Green Roofs and Living Walls course at CUNY City Tech in the Spring and Fall. I taught a modified version of this 90 min. green jobs training module last winter at the Queens Botanical Garden in cooperation with LaGuardia Community College.
