The first six GreenSmith Sessions have spanned the globe, from a CSR thought leader in London to the man giving green blogging a southern accent in Nashville, Tennessee. Today's GreenSmith Session went local. Very local, to the desk next door to me at lively coworking space Tenpod, here in Portland, Oregon.
With 3 acres of green roofs under his belt, Jason King of TERRA.fluxus has plied his trade from California to Washington, in a wide range of enviroments. Listen in as we discuss everything from the more common than you'd think practice of using chicken coops for testing grounds for avante garde green architecture, to the fact that NYC gets more rain than supposedly rainy Portland, Oregon. Keep an ear out for some interesting perspectives on sustainability, what it means, could mean, and how we could do better.
Hopefully this conversation will, um, plant some seeds in your mind of what you could do in your community, or on your business
I noticed on his blog that he had some DIY resources for green roofing, so I asked for you if he had sites to recommend for you to explore. He had three!
If you have any questions for him, or examples of landscape architecture (or vegitecture as he likes to call it) we would all benefit from knowing about, please feel free to share below. I'll make sure he knows about your questions, seeing as I can lean over and tell him!
