Green Roof Pasadena


The Westridge Upper School Sustainable Science Building is the first independent school in the San Gabriel Valley to build a LEED-certified green building…

Among the green features are… a green roof that will be planted with succulents.

Always with the succulents, never with the cactus. Cactus would make a very good green roof planting material, but people seem to prefer them some sempervivums. And in Pasadena, no less, where cactus would thrive in the hot sun. Maybe if we started a write-in campaign they could add in some prickly pears, and get some delicious tunas out of it in the long run.
