. . . what could be more important to a ‘floating-in-the-sky’ terrace/container garden, such as P.F.1 – than a lightweight planting soil ?
AMALE ANDRAOS & DAN WOOD got their “ultra-lightweight growing medium” from THE GAIA INSTITUTE: ‘GAIA SOIL / FOR GREEN ROOFS’ – PAUL S. MANKIEWICZ & JOHN HALENAR.
The GAIA INSTITUTE based in the BRONX, NYC – is a not-for-profit organization that:
” . . couples ecological engineering and restoration with the integration of human communities in natural systems.
“While much environmental engineering has the worthy aim of minimizing harm, The Gaia Institute explores, through research and development, design and construction, how human activities and waste products can be treated to increase ecological productivity, biodiversity, environmental quality, and economic well being.
“The purpose of The Gaia Institute is to test through demonstration the means by which the ecological components of backyards, communities, towns and cities, as wel as watersheds nd estuaries, can be enhanced through integrated wastes-into-resources technologies.”/THE GAIA INSTITUTE
. . . THE GAIA INSTITUTE website – with its briefly stated missions, visions & projects is worth a look.
