Green roofs and rooftop farming hold incredible hope for improving storm water management and food access, especially in urban areas. Two representatives (Zhenya Fomin and Stephanie Alarcon) from a recent Philadelphia rooftop farming initiative will discuss about how to green our skylines on Feb. 12, 2011. The spotlight will be on the municipal labyrinth of zoning and code enforcement, and engineering realities of old buildings.
Preregistration is requested and the cost is $10.00. Call (215) 471-2200 x100 for details.
When: Saturday, February 12, 2011, Registration and refreshments at 9AM, Presentation at 9:30 – 11AM
