Rooftop Garden Guru Coming to Windsor

Steven Peck, Executive Director of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities, a
Toronto-based coalition, is coming to Windsor.

Green roofs are a remarkable new approach to city infrastructure. They can
create jobs, reduce operational costs, and provide new sources of amenity
and recreational space. Green roofs also simultaneously address pressing
urban environmental issues such as smog, climate change, stormwater
management and energy conservation. The widespread adoption of green roofs
will allow communities to enjoy the significant social, economic and
environmental benefits of a healthy city.

“This is an exciting opportunity to learn more about an initiative that is
still in its infancy in Canada,” commented Shawn Hupka, president of the
Citizens Environment Alliance.

Join us in the Oak Room of the University of Windsor’s Vanier Hall at
7:00pm on Wednesday, April 18, 2001.  Vanier Hall is near the corner of
Wyandotte Street West and Huron Church Road, one block from the Ambassador

Everyone is welcome.

This event is being hosted by the Citizens Environment Alliance and is a
project of the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup Committee.
