Soil – The Foundation for Green Infrastructure

In November 2010, the British Columbia Landscape Architects Architects Association hosted a Landscape Café in Vancouver. Featured speaker Peter MacDonagh discussed the importance of restoring and protecting healthy soils as the foundation for green infrastructure.

“These days we’re all hearing about ‘Green’, but few people realize to be really ‘Green’ you must be ‘Blue’ too! Nature has designed a partnership Peter macdonagh (120p) - deep rootbetween land (‘Green’) and water (‘Blue’) where each benefits the other,” states Peter MacDonagh.
