DC Greenworks is a multifaceted, Washington D.C.-based project aimed at using gardening techniques and technologies to protect and improve the city environment. The green roofs and rain tanks installed by DC Greenworks have an incredible impact on the city’s water system, which struggles with excess runoff picking up debris and other waste material and depositing them in the local waterways. Green roofs and rain barrels catch, use, and conserve water, using it to grow local, organic food and provide city-based havens for local wildlife.
The program now installs about 1,000 green roofs per year, with more than 100,000 square feet of garden installed since 2009. DC Greenworks is an organization with an incredible track record and an innovative, exciting vision.
