with Carolyn Moss, B.Arch, OAA, LEED AP, Principal Architect, MOSS SUND
inc. and Terry McGlade, Horticulturalist and president of Gardens in the Sky,
recipient of many gardening awards including 2007 City of Toronto Green
Roof Award. Terry has been instrumental in bringing greenroof technology
into its own in Canada.

@ the Barbara Frum Library - Room "B"- 20 Covington Rd. (Bathurst and Lawrence).
FEE: $85

Join us for this day long workshop to learn how to create a green roof or
roof garden on both new and existing buildings. Rooftop gardens improve
air quality and reduce CO2 emissions, delay storm water runoff, increase
habitat for birds, reduce the heat island effect, reduce cooling costs and
increase the value of buildings. From structural issues to plant
selection, costs to permits - this workshop looks at the planning and
implementation of green roofs on both residential and larger buildings.
