Family Dollar

Installed over the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, dc greenworks worked with over 35 community volunteers over the 3 day installation.  Funded by a 2010 NIF grant, to green the rooftops along the H Street Corridor, the Family Dollar was the largest green roof installation.  The pre-vegetated sedum modules were delivered frozen and dormant and lifted to the roof with a hydraulic crane, and set into position.   As spring rolled in, the modules thawed out, creating a dense vegetated blanket.
