GROWWEST fosters regional dialogue for encouraging green roof policy; forwarding the design, construction and performance of green roofs in Colorado; and brings together parties united for the green roof cause. As a grass roots organization, it is Growwest’s goal to convince the public and politicians that government policies favoring green roofs are good for the environment and the bottom line.

Green roofs are an integral component of sustainable development in the arid West.

NYC Green Roofs

Ahhh.. the Highline a vastly publicized yet well deserving converted rail track to green roof in NYC. If you have never been, strolling among native grasses and streams of flowing exposed aggregate concrete, it is well worth it( it was worth it for me even in 15 degrees). The design provided by Field Operations and a well endowed budget make this an incredible experience. I have also included a roof visible from the 18th floor lounge of the Standard Hotel designed to echo the highline by Amy Falder and Chris Brunner of Convert, a New York Green Roofs Company.
