Oberlin College, located just outside of Cleveland, is an institution known for its interest in the green movement. With a zero-waste building on campus and plenty of new green construction in the planning stages, Oberlin College is becoming a definite leader in the movement to use green technology for educational purposes.

Placed on Harkness Hall, one of the housing buildings on campus, this GreenGrid green roof is accessible and plaza-like, enabling students and faculty to view the plants and modules and become more familiar with the growth process of a green roof.
This roof was initiated by Oberlin College?s Office of Environmental Sustainability in their ongoing effort to green the campus and includes a mix of five sedums:

Sedum ?Bailey?s Gold?/ ?Weihenstephaner Gold?
Sedum kamtschaticum
Sedum reflexum
Sedum sexangular
Sedum spurium ?Fuldaglut? / ?Dragon?s Blood?
