Greenroofs.com’s inaugural Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2011 was simply awesome!
Thank you to our Rare Earth Sponsor, TREMCO, for making it a reality, especially Ralph Velasquez! Ralph, Executive Director of Sustainability with Tremco, was one of our Keynote Speakers and created a wonderful video presentation about CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility.
Also, we are very grateful to the support of our Emerald Sponsor, American Hydrotech. Richard C. Hayden, RLA, ASLA, CLARB, is the Garden Roof Department Manager at American Hydrotech and shared some amazing projects and experience with “Sloped and Complex Green Roofs.”
As you already know the winner of our first iPad2 given away for early bird registrants was James Neville of Neville Environmental Services from Vancouver, B.C., Canada…
Without further ado, the winner of the second Apple iPad2 is…
Kira Udo, Student at Georgia Perimeter College!
Kira lives in Roswell, Georgia, just a stone’s throw from us here in Alpharetta. She is studying French with a concentration in Business Administration. She’s interested in greenwalls and loves the work of Patrick Blanc. Congratulations!

Here’s what one attendee had to say afterwards:
“Thank you for hosting the Virtual Summit 2011. The event was extremely useful to me. I’ve been working with green roofs here in Florida since 1995 and feel I learned more in two days than in most years since the time I first started growing plants way back, on a tin roof.
Most importantly though, the enthusiasm and success of others was so very important.
Here in Florida we lag behind the rest of the nation and the world. But that is changing. I know green roofs here will evolve just as beautifully and successfully as elsewhere.
Just seeing the inspirational work of others gave me the boost I needed. Thank you and Aramis and the staff and speakers. The Greenroofs.com Virtual Summit 2011 showed the world the importance of your outreach and informational organization.” ~ Kevin Songer
Thanks, Kevin! If you weren’t able to join us live, we hope you will still sign up and enjoy the 32 presentations at your leisure through October 28!
See you at a physical conference somewhere in the world soon, and remember,
Love the Earth, Plant a Roof!
