Photo courtesy of Steven Peck SPRING ISSUE When the day lilies were first planted there were lots of bare areas left over. The roof was not maintained for five years so over 50 species of pioneering plants established themselves, competing with the lilies. (left image) TREATMENT The growing media was full of seeds, but they have been suppressed with tarps, and this roof has gradually been turned into a rooftop farm which produces more than 25,000 pounds of produce per year (right image). A tour of the roof is being given at the Grey to Green conference in Toronto June 1-4, 2016.
