The Green View on the Roof

Today, I had the privilege of being part of a crew of at least a dozen or more parents, teachers, and even a grandparent of our school to make "green history" at my school:  Eagle Cove School.  As a Maryland "Green" School, we are all about being green.  Recycling is 2nd nature.  Composting is what we do.  We grow vegetables in the on-campus greenhouse.  We trek along the nature trail, and we seine in the river that neighbors our campus. Today, we ratcheted it up a notch:  today we put in a 15' x 25' green roof on a section of one of our campus building's roofs. 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  If that is indeed the case, then a Smilebox, with embedded video, is worth at least 10,000.  Watch it here, with photos I snapped throughout the day.  It's amazing what you can accomplish in a little over 3 hours when you come equipped with a crew!  Special thanks to Rick Truett, from RF Truett Sustainable Building in Pasadena, Maryland, for all the assistance along the way today, helping our Green Roof take shape.
