First "Feather Weight"© Green Roof ever installed is now on our roof! This is a great new technology that allows us to have the benefits of a green roof; better urban air quality, cooler building in the summer, and animal habitat, without the intense weight that our old roof cannot support . This design is based on plants that vine with the soil concentrated on the parapets at the perimeter. Many thanks to the NYS DEC for pr oviding us with the grant to create the roof. Thanks also to Hudson Valley Natural Building for the design and installation.
