Dear colleagues,


April is World Landscape Architecture Month, this year marks the 48th Anniversary of Earth Month®, and Earth Day is April 22. What better way to celebrate than with a Twitter Chat about #Greenroofs? The Global Grid asked us at Greenroofs.com to co-host their monthly Twitter Chat, and we think it's a fantastic idea! Join Dusty Gedge, President of the European Federation of Green Roof Associations (EFB) in London; Tessa Duste, founder of RoofLife in Amsterdam; Ben Flanner, co-founder of Brooklyn Grange Rooftop Farm in New York City; and me in Alpharetta, GA on April 18 from 12pm - 1pm PT.


Don't miss Grey to Green 2018 in Toronto where you can Reimagine Urban Infrastructure - and save $50 if you register by April 30th. Jobs, Health & Community Resilience will be highlighted on May 15 and 16 along with Keynotes Craig Applegath, Paul Kephart and Brian Brisbin.


Have you seen the newly published Arup Report: CitiesAlive - Rethinking Cities in Arid Environments? The report points to examples of initiatives in arid cities that are making them more sustainable, healthier and better places to live, including greenroofs and walls.


Finally, we had a great time at AgLanta a couple of weeks ago. We heard from lots of new, interesting people really connecting fresh, local food growing options with our urban food deserts. Let's get some of these on walls and up on the roof, too!
