“The Green Roof Design and Installation course was so good, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. It’s the perfect overview of all the elements, with just enough detail... I especially enjoyed having a green roof there as an example to refer to throughout the course. It was validating and motivating to keep promoting our green roof and other green roofs and made me realize how incredibly generous (and complex!) green roofs are in their beauty, design and function.”
