Green Roofs: A 50/50 Proposition

Where: Häfele Chicago, 154 W. Hubbard St., Chicago IL 60654

When: Thursday, August 27, 2009

5:30pm – 7:00pm

Have you ever wondered what it takes to convert a hot, barren roof into a garden?  Rooftop gardening and green roofs are a hot topic in Chicago, and a concept endorsed by our own Mayor Daley.  The benefits to individuals, buildings, and cities are well documented – and the pleasure of a cool green oasis is well known.

Join us for an introductory course on green roofs designed to show you what a green roof is and how it’s constructed.  We’ll learn the important considerations for the design, build-up and maintenance of a green roof, the most effective plants for different types of green roofs, and current design trends and popular garden features.  There will be brief insights into estimated costs, LEED points, and how to get green roof permits in the City of Chicago.

You’re invited!

These events are free, but we ask you to please register.

[Because Häfele serves alcohol at our evening events, we ask that guests are at least 21 years old.]
