Course Descriptions - see below

This course – the first of its kind in North America at the time of its launch in December 2010 – discusses multiple
approaches to growing food on rooftops through design and maintenance principles, and case studies drawn from across North America. Learn about:

  • The diversity of physical applications of urban agriculture and the growing technologies that apply.
  • The social, environmental and economic benefits of urban agriculture and rooftop farming.
  • The governance, personnel and economic options for implementing urban agriculture and rooftop farming systems and operations.
  • The conditions that lead to a successful urban agriculture project.
  • Strategies for overcoming common challenges associated with developing an urban agriculture/rooftop farming project.
  • Basic installation and maintenance principles.

Includes an 85-page course manual.

This course is approved for 3.5 PDHs by LA CES; 3.5 CEHs by AIA CES; 3.5 CE Hours by GBCI; 3.5 CEHs by RCI; 3.5 CEUs by APLD; and 3.5 CEUs for GRPs by GRHC.

Developed jointly by GRHC and American Society of Irrigation Consultants (ASIC) committee members, this course provides technical and economic information on the design and performance of a fully integrated site and building water management system based on the “Net Zero Water” concept.

This approach promises to significantly reduce the consumption of potable water in buildings, reduce discharge to municipal waste water systems, and save on municipal energy by reducing the amount of potable water treated at municipal facilities. The recognition of the connection between water management and energy conservation is emerging as a new opportunity in integrated management systems.

Key concepts and terminology are illustrated by case studies and demonstration projects which identify issues and opportunities associated with:

  • Costs and benefits
  • Design and engineering practices
  • Installation and maintenance requirements
  • Efficiency and performance of a fully functional integrated site and building water management system based on the “Net Zero Water” concept.

This half-day course provides attendees with a review of various vegetative technologies in urban areas (i.e. green walls, green roofs, urban forests, rain gardens), presents the latest research on their many performance benefits, and showcases a variety of leading edge policy and program developments in cities such as Chicago, Seattle, New York and Toronto that support the greening of our cities. Ideal for policy makers and other advocates of urban greenery.

Developed by the Green Infrastructure Foundation.
