Green roof on a church

I am standing on a green roof on a catholic church in the South Bronx. Last year youth and educators from the Youth Ministry for Peace and Justice have planted grass on this church. During a tour of my research site with Kendra Liddicoat, my colleague at Cornell, we have found that the church has recently installed solar panels on the other side of the roof. Interestingly, both natural and high-tech sides of the roof are using the energy of the sun. Kendra said this roof is very educational because residents in surrounding high rise buildings can see this innovation.
