NYC Event: How to Create a Green Roof Garden

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

New Yorkers and other urban dwellers without a backyard might think their gardening must be limited to a few windowsill pots, and the cool light of an Aerogrow. But if you’ve got a roof of any kind, you can have a lush garden that insulates your house, is good for the environment, and provides you with convenient and fresh herbs and vegetables.

This Saturday, Brooklyn resident and long-time volunteer for the Red Hook Community Garden Jeff Heens is giving a free slide-show talk and how-to discussion on creating a green roof garden.

Whether you want to be an active gardener, or just want to slow rainwater runnoff and moderate the harshness of the summer heat, you can learn how this Saturday at the Park Slope Food Coop.
