Green Roof Professional (GRP) Training in NYC
October 13 - 15
New York City remains one of the hottest markets for green roofs in North America, with over two million square feet of rooftop space vegetated in 2015 alone. With the city extending the green roof tax abatement for property owners until 2018, there’s never been a greater opportunity for qualified designers and practitioners to add value to buildings through green roof implementation.
Registration includes detailed reference manuals (totaling 500+ pages), breakfast, lunch and refreshments. Members of the Hort can use the discount code TheHortMember to get a $25 discount on each day of training.
Green Roofs for Healthy Cities is an approved continuing education provider with USGBC/GBCI, AIA CES, LA CES, APLD, BOMI and RCI.

Monday – Friday 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM
New York Design Center – 1st dibs Gallery (10th Floor)
Visit the premier showcase of contemporary botanical art from November 3rd to December 23rd at The New York Design Center. The 19th Annual International exhibition, hosted by the Horticultural Society of New York and the American Society of Botanical Artists, features forty-eight works from some of the genre’s most established artists. Artworks were selected from a highly competitive field of 258 submissions from around the world including the United States, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
Jurors Susan Fraser, Director, Mertz Library, The New York Botanical Garden; David Horak, Curator of the Aquatic House, Brooklyn Botanic Garden; and Catherine Watters, Botanical Artist, will present awards to artists whose work exemplifies the historic botanical medium. Additionally, Jared Goss, formerly an Associate Curator in the Department of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and a Board Member of The Hort, has agreed to serve as guest Curator for the exhibition.
The goals of the exhibition are to promote awareness of exceptional, contemporary botanical art; to support the artists through the sale of their work; and to raise money in order to further the mission of The Horticultural Society of New York.
