Well, we knew that greenroofs would eventually make it into mainstream America – and finally they have!
Ed Snodgrass, co-owner of Emory Knoll Farms / Green Roof Plants (and Contributing Editor here on Greenroofs.com), will be on the Hallmark Channel’s “The Martha Stewart Show” on this Friday, April 20, 2012!
Since I’ll be working, I’ve already set my DVR is record Friday’s show – how exciting! Check the Hallmark Channel/The Martha Stewart Show website for your area time listings.
“The Earth Day Show,” as it’s touted, is described as follows:
“Go green with environmentally friendly ideas for your home and outdoor space. Build your own lush rooftop garden with a handy guide from Ed Snodgrass, president and founder of Emory Knoll Farms. Plus, a look at Disneynature’s remarkable new film, “Chimpanzee.”
I don’t know about “Chimpanzee” yet, but I can bet that it will be fun to watch Ed! He filmed at the studio on Monday, April 16 and here Ed is below on the set:
Chip, The Martha Stewart Show set designer, is on Ed’s left, and Andrea Mason, who produces the garden segments, is on Ed’s right.
Ed says they constructed the shed mock up, above, to highlight differences between green and non-greened roofs and show the basics of small scale projects, including various growing media and planting options.
Ed is also promoting his book Small Green Roofs: Low-Tech Options for Greener Living, 2011, which he co-wrote with Nigel Dunnett, Dusty Gedge, and John Little. I’m sure that viewers will appreciate the unlimited DIY possibilities here.
How appropriate that Martha is showcasing greenroofs on Earth Day – congratulations, Ed and kudos to Martha Stewart and staff for raising the public’s awareness of greenroofs!
By the way, make sure to see Ed’s collaboration on the “Green Roofs Without the Hype” panel presentation video, now playing on our GreenroofsTV Channel on YouTube.
As I always say, “Love the Earth, Plant a Roof!”
