bird watchingGreen Roofs for You

Green roofs are as old as time. In her lavishly illustrated talk, Barbara Paca, will show the evolution of the green roof, from buried houses in Scandinavia to super modern systems grown horizontally and vertically in New York, Paris, and Beijing. She will also bring samples of green roof plants, selected from her horticulture design and research center in Oxford, MD. Experience how green roofs represent the unification of haute horticulture, cutting edge technology, and classical aesthetics to purify the air and provide sanctuary. Paca, Ph.D., an internationally acclaimed landscape designer and preservationist, is in the business of nature, art, beauty, and she leads a brain trust in creating new products, all promoting the unity of classical beauty, horticultural experimentation, and cutting edge environmentalism.
