“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” - Foreword, A Sand County Almanac
Sustainability September will highlight how Duke Farms serves as a model of environmental stewardship and ways that you can infuse practices in your home, community, and workplace that encourage a cleaner greener life for generations to come while also combating climate change.
Have you ever seen the Green Roof Nature Station outside the Orientation Center at Duke Farms? It's there for a reason! Let's talk about the environmental benefits of a green roof. Not only does a green roof garden provide habitat for flora and fauna, but it also conserves rainwater - and all these benefits are done in style. Green roofs provide a pop of life and color to any structure. In this resource, learners will discover the history behind green roofs, their benefits, structure, and engage in activities to deepen understanding of how a green roof garden works.
