Chris Wegscheid & Corrie Zoll – RoofBloom Instead of waiting for green roofs to come to the Twin Cities as a product for mass consumption, RoofBloom was created to empower individuals with the knowledge and materials needed to install green roofs themselves. A collaboration between the Minnesota Green Roof Council and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, RoofBloom is taking action at a grass roots level, while focusing on improving the sustainability and effectiveness of green roof construction.

    Not as advertized.
    They just want to get you to go to their website.
    I want to know how to build a cheap homemade green roof.
    What are they using for moisture barrier. Is normal tar paper good enough?
    Do you need a root barrier if all you have is grass up there?

    Is it possible to install a green roof on a 2000 Nissan Sentra? I can't seem to find any info at all on green roof cars; even art cars. It gets so hot here in Houston, and there has to be a better way than blasting the air conditioner and getting only 20 miles to the gallon during summer as opposed to 29+ during the winter.

    There is. It depends largely on plant selection: most green roofs use species that are drought-tolerant. Also, runoff can be stored in cisterns and then pumped back up on the roof for irrigation during dry spells.
