Green Roof (GRaS)

In the fall of 2010 Sustainable South Bronx installed Green Roof at Smith (GRaS), a 1,500 square foot green roof on the Smith Campus in the South Bronx.  This couldn’t have happened without support from City Gardens Club of NY and NY State’s Department of Environmental Conservation.  Many thanks for this amazing environmental learning center!

We’re continually looking for support to help improve this environmental learning center.  Here’s our wish list of materials we’re looking to buy. If you are interested in supporting our efforts by buying one of these items, please contact Nate Wight at Nwight@schools.nyc.gov
