The value of the Grey Infrastructure (roads, bridges, highways) in our urban spaces gets a lot of press. The Green Infrastructure has been completely undervalued and is typically unseen. There is tons of data about the state (and current value) of roads and and other parts of the publicly-owned grid that keeps us moving - but - until now, we've had no data about the assets that 'keep us breathing' as we go about our busy lives. This groundbreaking report lays it all out, and puts a real value to

I just looked it up - I registered the Domain Name 'rootrescue.com' in 2005 - it's taken a while to get to opening day, but here we are at last. The Root Rescue Project began in 2002 when I began to wrestle with what might be the cause of stubbornly high plant failures at our Garden Centre / Design/Build operation in Vaughan Ontario.

And since then we've been hustling to get our packaging designs finalized and hit the ground running. The LO Congress came on so fast that we were unable and (truthfully) unequipped to get a booth ready for the show - so we did the next best thing - we turned to our friends and asked for help.
