Senior Keystone Project: Green Roofs

Keystone Presentation Date: Thursday, May 18, 2:25-3:25 pm
For my Keystone, I created a 10 foot by 10 foot living roof, filled with succulents and drought resistant grasses. The roof provides habitat for native insect and plant species, and will serve as a nice spot of green, in the largely plantless neighborhood.

A huge thank you goes to Kerrie-Lee Cole and Kevin of Symbios for acting as my mentors in this project, to Kathleen and Tony Bloom of Bloom’s nursery for donating all the plants, to Dominic Gamache of the East Bay Nursery for donating soil, and to Mr. Cole for helping me get approval and providing general assistance. This project will be carried on through the years by student and faculty volunteers who will water and maintain the green roof, hopefully allowing to act as a long term source of environmental education for JCHS.
