Interesting that they don't publicize their green roof! I wonder how long it's been there.


Interesting. If you do get back--just for curiosity and a peek during the growing season--do share what you find out.


I THINK my mother-in-law's gardening club has helped work at that garden. Not sure if they helped when it was put in, or just with maintenance. When my grandma was at St. Mary's, and then my dad, I found comfort in their garden. It's such a nice thing for hospitals to have.

KRISTIN — I've been to the garden at St. Mary's and it is lovely. Being able to see nature is supposedly helpful for feeling and getting better.

Started snowing last night and there was about 6" on the ground when I got up at 7-ish. Now it looks like there's 8". I think this is going to be our biggest storm of the season.

BETH — I will have to remember to check it out again. I am curious to see what it looks like during the growing season.


Interesting. I wandered the internet a bit--seems like UW has done some experimenting with green roofs--bits of info in here on the challenges and lessons learned. You may already know this stuff, but I didn't. Educational--thanks!

hb — Thanks so much for that great link. Clearly the benefit of having readers who aren't local residents. I've been in Nancy Nicholas Hall dozens of times and checked out all the green features when the building first opened. Embarrassed that I never thought to check the UW to see what they were doing.
