Event Description

Hello All!

Once again, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities North America (GRHC) is having an upcoming event in New York City!

We would love it if you could pass the word along through any means you see fit, or just to anyone you think might find this information useful. If you are not the appropriate point of contact for this kind of thing, please let me know who I may speak with.

Overview of Program

The Green Roof Professional (GRP) accreditation program is comprised of four full-day courses that offer participants from a diverse range of disciplines the knowledge and skills required to successfully market, design, budget, install and maintain green roofs. Green Roof Design 101, Green Roof Infrastructure: Design and Installation 201, Green Roof Waterproofing and Drainage 301 and Green Roof Plants and Growing Media 401 are recommended training for individuals preparing to write the accreditation exam. Each course also includes a 100+ page course manual.

Also, the participants of the 2nd course (Green Roof Infrastructure: Design & Installation 201), will have the opportunity to have a tour of the NYC Parks Department's 29,000 square foot green roof research facility, comprised of over 25 distinct systems.
