Reduce your environmental footprint one strategy at a time.

Seeding the City

Posted on | January 12, 2010 | No Comments

IMG_1060-225x300We’re participating an a public art project called Seeding the City.

The project aims to install tiny green roof modules (about 4 square feet each) on a large number of city roofs and mark them with flags so they can be visually linked to one another. These links come from neighbor to neighbor referrals to increase the awareness about environmental issues in our community.

I love this project. If you live in NYC and want to participate, contact eve  AT seedingthecity.org.  Tell them Ellen sent you.
