 Herbicides in Green Roof
Runoff Polluting Drinking Water


By: Jörg Breuning & Samantha Yurek
 

Intrinsic Perennial Gardens

Established in 1992, this nursery has been growing along-side their unique perennial selection. The 23 acre farm now offers over 900 varieties of perennials to choose from! 


Episcopal Academy Installs
More Green Roofs


Newton Square, Pennsylvania received a handful of new green space in the air this month. The glass walled hallways of Epicopal Academy's high school now overlook a more cheery environment compared to the black tar it once used to be. These new creations sit amongst a few other flourishing green roofs installed last summer.

  Urban Heat Island and Green Roofs

A metropolitan area which is significantly warmer than its rural counterparts, the Urban Heat Island Effect creates a more brutal environment, especially during these sweltering summer days.
