From Parking to Garden

april2011

B-CAD is removing asphalt parking spaces and will use the space for a vegetable garden.  The garden will be about 700 SF and will be planted and maintained by the employees.  It is their goal to create a self-sustaining organic garden, nourished by a triple bin onsite composting.

The extra parking spaces exceeded the minimum required by Local Codes and B-CAD looks for every opportunity to create a more sustainable site.  The removal of the impervious asphalt will decrease rainwater run-off from our site.

It is also another step towards B-CAD’s goal in becoming LEED Certified.
