The presentation will cover green roofs, their benefits, their installation and their maintenance. You will also learn about the DC grant program available to pay for a portion of their installation and other local funding opportunities.
Our two presenters will be Greg Long of Capital Greenroofs, LLC and Sara Loveland of DC Greenworks.
Gregory Long, Founder of Capital Greenroofs, LLC of Arlington, VA. will be our expert that day. He is one of the reasons that the DC region is third in the country in green roof installations, next only to San Francisco and Chicago.
Sara Loveland is the Interim Executive Director of DC Greenworks, a nonprofit environmental concern based in Washington, DC that trains low-income youths and others to install green roofs. DC Greenworks administers the Washington DC grant program for Green Roof installations. Sara will be helping us understand the installation process, how to apply for financial assistance (in Washington, DC) and give us descriptions of local projects she and DC Greenworks have accomplished.
