I am all for not using a car. I love to walk and in an area that makes room for safe bike riding, this is another great alternative to gas guzzling cars. It's a great partner to improving eating habits and getting healthier.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, February 6, 2014 3:11 PM

 Full of information about small green roofs, their construction and biodiversity and plants, over half is devoted to 40 case studies. The book is full of inspiring and beautiful images of a wide variety of green roofs on all manner of buildings and structures. Written for homeowners, architects, landscape architects or ecologists, it’s a valuable resource on a practical level that serves as an excellent companion to the many other green roof books on the market, while at the same time offering a completely unique approach to the way green roofs have been previously written about.
