Green Roofs Conference @ Toronto Botanical Gardens, Feb 21 2008

Honestly, it's too expensive for me (and so far, for everyone else I know too). Guess we'll have to wait for it to trickle down into a book or a workshop. Luckily however inspiration is free: on the speakers list I noticed Mathis Natvik from Natvik Ecological. Get this - he designs urban green roofs with native plant communities from Great Lakes Region habitats, including sand dune, oak savannah, prairie, cliff face, alvar and wetlands. He also grows the plants in his own nursery. How cool is that?

Update: The Toronto Botanical Garden has posted papers from the Green Roof Conference and other green roof resources too.
