About Community Greens

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view.

A green roof is partially or completely covered with vegetation, such as sedum, planted in a growing medium over a waterproof membrane. Green roofs are can help insulate your house, reduce water runoff, filter pollutants, and cool the air. The typical green roof isn’t meant to be walked on. A roof garden, whether or not it has flowerbeds, is meant to be visited and enjoy.
