Come Grow With Us in Northern NJ
The Northern NJ council met Wednesday, April 20, 2022. The “Grow With Us” in-person event was hosted at PB Roofing in Elwood Park, NJ and dinner was sponsored by GAF.
In celebration of Earth Day, Capitol Roofing Company presented the benefits of vegetative roofing. Eric Deriben and Sej Sorathia answered questions on system compatibilities, installation and spoke about the pros and cons of tray and built-in place systems.
After dinner and a networking hour, the group built terrariums, using the same principles they learned in the roofing demonstration with a drainage layer, growing medium, and sedum. The event also celebrated those who helped build council membership. A discounted rate off the night’s events was offered to those who brought incoming members to the meeting.
Upcoming events include a Habitat For Humanity build in May and a tour of GAF’s R&D facility in June. Stay tuned for upcoming details.
