The Cambridge Center for Adult Education offers a seminar in Green Roofs on Saturday, September 26, from 10 – noon.Â Green roofs are an inspiring and intelligent solution to environmental problems. By installing vegetation on rooftops, we can enjoy many social and economic benefits for property owners and society as a whole. These include absorbing storm water, reducing building energy costs, improving air quality, extending the service life of roofs, and creating new green space. Apex Green Roofs, a local design/build company, will give an overview of these benefits, design considerations and case studies. We will have a model on hand that shows the different layers of a green roof system. Limited to 16.
For homeowners and general public Sec. 01: 1 Saturday, 10:00 am-12:00 noon. Sep. 26, 56 Brattle St. | $44
