Garden Club Meeting: Speaker Jim Mumford of Green Scaped Buildings. “Living Walls and Roofs – Purposes and Creation”Jim Mumford is a horticulturist, Certified Landscape Professional, and an accredited Green Roof Professional. Jim found early on that by combining rain water harvesting with home grown food in a closed –circuit ecosystem on walls and roofs would work quite well in urban environments. He has quickly become the go to guy for such systems and serves clients not only locally but nationally (Meredith French for Programs).
