Green roof in the Bronx

Students in Youth Ministries for Peace and Justice, the Bronx, New York City, maintain a green roof on a church. Young people plant native species of grass and remove invasive species. The roof reduces stormwater runoff, reduces heating costs in winter, keeps the building cooler in summer, and provides educational opportunities for community members. Videography: Alex Kudryavtsev. Narrators: Julien Terrell, Andre Rivera.
