On Thursday September 21 the Hugh Garner Co-op celebrated the completion of Phase 1 of their Green Roof project. We have been working, in conjunction with Monica E Kuhn Architect, on this project for more than 3 years. It was exciting to realize how far the public's understanding of green roofs has come in that time.
The evening was a great success - with a stacked house including deputy mayor Joe Pantalone, 2 former mayors - Barbara Hall and David Crombie, the newly minted Deputy Premier of Ontario, George Smitherman, local councillor Pam McConnell and a host of other community leaders. Monica and Carolyn gave a short presentation on the progress of the project and next steps.
