Net Negative Carbon Florida Green Roof

The two photographs here show how much biomass is growing on the Breaking Ground Green Roof.  The first photo was taken May 5th, 2011.  The next photo was taken October 9th, 2011.

We are having a biomass harvesting party later this month where we will be calculating how much dry weight plant material is harvested and the estimated sequestered carbon.

Having a green roof pull carbon from the urban core atmosphere and pump fresh oxygen into the air is one step towards restoring the health of our cities.

Very nice. Isn't it great to see green roofs sprouting around town? It just shows that many home and building owners are realizing the advantages of having greens on their roofs.
