GRHC to launch green wall course

Green Roofs for Healthy Cities’ new course, Green Wall 101: Introduction to Systems and Design, will be unveiled at the Fifth Annual International Greening Rooftops for Sustainable Communities Conference on May 2.

As the first of six seminars focusing on technologies used to anchor plants and irrigation to the sides of buildings, participants will learn the primary components and functions of green wall systems, including the selection, design, installation and maintenance of the major types of green walls. In addition, the course will highlight characteristics and advantages of green walls, such as heat reduction, protection from ultra-violet rays and the lowering of energy costs.

More introductory green wall courses will be offered throughout the year in Chicago, New York, Boston, Washington D.C., and at the American Society of Landscape Architects’ conference in San Francisco this October.
