The Master Gardener Association of Northwest Michigan (MGANM) is installing a green roof garden shed at the Boardman River Nature Center 4 miles south of Traverse City. The shed will be both functional and educational: not only will it store tools and supplies used to maintain the education center, it will also be a resource for visitors interested in learning about green roof technology.
Construction is already underway, with NMC students building the structure as part of their curriculum. We are educating the public before the roof is even on!
The final phase of the project will be the installation of the green roof on Sunday, October 18, 2015 (rain or shine). The installation of the green roof and plants will be conducted as an educational exhibition open to the public, and provide valuable information about green roof technology to an increasingly conversation-conscious Northern Michigan.
Pricing is as follows:
-Sponsors of $200 or more (Lupine level and up) may bring 2 attendees for free
-Teachers, kids, and MGANM members are $5
-The general public will be $15
