As the temperature rises to 105 degrees in urban areas such as Los Angeles, the skyline reflects pavement verses vegetative roof tops, actually RETAINING HEAT! Challenging as this urban arid city is, missing out on one of the most efficient and cost effective solutions to heat island effect, a very toxic and health risk phenomenon, vegetative roofs seem like the most logical solution to a growing issue with climate change. (or painting the streets white). For instance, Sedum Carpets are easy to install, extremely affordable and easy to maintain. Zero potable water for irrigation can be accomplished based on design and minimal water is needed for sedum material. A fact LA to be aware of is the surface temperature of a green roof is substantially cooler than the air temperature and the surface of a conventional rooftop can be up to 90°F (50°C) warmer. Rana Creek not only offers that most efficient and visually enhanced sedum carpet rooftop material for commercial and industrial applications, but Paul Kephart, one of the leading international designers of green roofs, creates applications that integrate a suite of solutions via green roofs in urban areas including water efficiency/water resources for irrigation. #heatislandeffect #vegetativeroof #urbanecosystem #sustainablelandscaping #greenroof #livingarchitecture #livingsystems #losangelesheatwave #rooftopheadstand #sedumrooftops #irrigationsystem #zeroirrigation #ranacreekdesign #ranacreekproducts #paulkephart #greenroofdesign #losangelesheatwave #lasustainablecityplan

The only way we’re going to find our way out of these crises is, if we recognize the complexity of the matters that we face. What about you, what can you or I do? Let’s not fool ourselves that this pattern, what we are trapped in is just a political phenomenon. It is happening because of the things that you and I do in our homes and communities every day. Our acts and our deeds really contribute to this. 🎥 Watch, and learn more: Peter T.

D.C Sekhar, founder of AlphaMERS Ltd, discusses how plausible and difficult cleaning up the oceans really is. Complex is the key word and technology the second, but Paul Kephart, pioneer in the mission to deal with ocean pollution understands that green roofs and living systems eliminate more often than not up to 100% of stormwater run off, elimating heavy debris, metals and toxins from entering the ocean waters. Many of Rana Creek projects can testify to what is a feasible, cheaper, easier and multifaceted solution, augmenting the amazing technology launched by AlphaMERS. #cleanoceans #greenroof #livingsystems #livingarchitecture #stormwatermanagement #stormwaterdrain #paulkephart #ranacreekdesign #alphamerslltd #dcsekhar #urbanecosystem #sustainablelandscaping #oceantechnologysystems

Partial to total green roof scrapes echo throughout the skyline of New York, reports Michelle Higgins in her New York Times Piece on Living Roofs, June 26, 2018. Wildflowers bloom on a townhouse rooftop while sedums cover an entire commercial roof plane. New York has been a trailblazer and celebrated green roofs for decades. Yes, adornment, but if any city can testify to the return on investment of green roofs, New York leads the way taking respite in decreased impact on their ancient sewer system as a result of stormwater management and reduced energy costs due to decrease of heat island effect. The list of benefits is a lengthy one and worth the research. #greenroof #livingarchitecture #livingsystems #newyorkgreenroofs #stormwatermanagement #urbanheatisland #sedumrooftops #ranacreekdesign #newyorktimes #natureconservancy #andrewfranzarchitect #michellehiggins

Greening the City of Angels is being initiated by George Lucas and his wife Mellody Hobson with a “saga’” of an 11-acre living roof designed by MAD Architects. Envisioning the entire project as a mission to revitalize Exposition Park, the Green Roof will contribute to the resiliency of Los Angeles, providing a habitat for many endangered if not disappearing wildlife from bees to birds to butterflies within the Park. A ‘slew’ of green roof benefits will be the results of this flagship – or ‘mother ship’ movement that Paul Kephart, International Designer of Living Architecture, celebrates as a win-win for the City of Angels. #lucasmuseum #georgelucas #mellodyhobson #expositionpark #greenroof #livingsystems #livingarchitecture #madarchitects #paulkephart #ranacreekdesign #endangeredspecies #flagship #losangeleswildlife #cityofangels #wildlifecorridor #urbanecosystem #sustainablelandscaping #ranacreeknursery

Planting day is always a momentous part of the overall installation process. While the plants are just one aspect of the entire green roof, once planting is completed the green roof takes on the easily recognizable, organic component that truly makes a living system what it is.

“Mother Nature speaks in a language understood within he peaceful mind of the sincere observer.” -Radhanath Swami- The time spent in the garden watering plants can be used for reflection and appreciation of the true beauty that surrounds you. This is one of the reasons why we love growing outdoor, because we feel a deep connection with the Earth and its many moods as the seasons change. As we enter the summer, it’s as though we pass through an invisible doorway and into another realm where we recognize the true power of the sun and the importance of water. So when you see a simple insect, a wildflower, a mighty oak or the living system that ties the whole landscape together, know that Mother Nature is calling, but are you listening? #mothernatureiscalling #areyoulistening #beherenow #withinnature #naturewithin #beautysurroundsus #cultivatepeace #radhanathswami #talltrees #deeproots #outdoorgrow #offgrid but #connected #watchtheweatherchange #solstice #entertheportal #invisibledoors #powerofthesun #waterislife #reflections #manycamebefore #manywillcomeafter #regenerate #ecology #livingsystems #cultivatewhatmatters #cannabiscommunity #mindfulnessmatters #nofilter #ef_lifestyle

In New York it is referred to as Greening Gotham – in LA, lets start with Greening the ‘City of Angels!’ Green Roofs in Los Angeles, although limited, Paul Kephart sees as a thriving future of connecting urban ecosystems to the built and natural environments through Green Roofs. One of the few projects in LA is City Hall Council District Nine, designed and built in partnership with Paul Murdoch Architecture. It is a 6,324 sq. foot space alive with over 40 plant species and native wildlife. Not only detaining up to 60% of stormwater runoff, it is located at the top of the Compton Creek Watershed, integrating with the rehabilitation of the LA River! #greeninggotham #councildistrict9 #cityofangels #livingsystems #livingarchitecture #greenroof #stormwatermanagement #paulmurdocharchitects #urbandesign #urbanecosystem #paulkephart #comptoncreek #lariverproject #nativehabitat #sustainablelandscaping #greenroofpark

MONTH OF MUSIC. DAY 17. ‘Spirals’. Another song I wrote whilst living in the trees, re-configuring myself and my life in the wake of great change. Devastation into liberation and a cracking open of a conditioned life that happens to all of us at one time or another if we allow it and keep awake to it. Somewhere along the road I discovered the work of #joannamacy a phenomenal and inspiring activist, author and eco-philosopher. In her book #comingbacktolife she writes that the ‘Earth is a living process in which we participate’ and that ‘positive disintegration’ is a necessary part of it. ‘ #livingsystems ’ are moved to evolve when their survival is endangered and yet in that process there is a ‘temporary kind of limbo’, disorientating to the mind, that can feel like dying. She continues; ‘we know this dying in the splitting of the stars, the cracking open of seeds in the soil, the relinquishment of gills and fins as we crawled onto dry land’. These words hit me in the gut, along with the cycles of the trees I was witnessing and my own internal process and it moved me to write this title track of my first album. I wanted to capture how vital it felt to surrender to the process, step into the unknown and the dark, trust an emerging evolution and stay tuned in to creativity throughout this new evolution. I felt it for me personally, I felt it on a wider scale and I could see it in the trees. I got in touch with Joanna to ask for her permission to transform some of her words into the chorus of this song and was so grateful she not only said yes but after listening to the music sent back some words of testimonial that I was deeply honoured to receive: ‘Eleanor Brown beautifully captures the spirit of the work that reconnects, conveying in fresh, lyric fashion the age-old wisdom we now so need to hear,’ - Joanna Macy.

As we approach the end of spring, certain plants on living roof systems will start to shift in expression. Sedum pulchellum, pictured here, is one of the few North American native species adapted for the conditions of a green roof. At this time of year, pulchellum will start to bloom with its distinctive 'crow foot' pink blossoms.

“Let’s face it: there is no thing in biology (or, as Bohm would have it, in the world). Things are abstractions from an ever-changing reality. Reality consists of a hierarchy of intertwined processes. If life is change, then the activities driving this change are what we must explain. Yet we lack concepts and experimental approaches for the study of the dynamic aspects of living systems.” Johannes Jaeger ••• Learn more: John Dupré and Daniel J. Nicholson.

AD Goes Inside Carmel's Iconic Butterfly House Posted May 25, 2018 Text by Mallery Roberts Morgan Photography by Douglas Friedman Styled by Michael Reynolds Designing an interconnected native landscape of Carmel California’s coastal seashore with Los Angeles Architect Jamie Bush’s redesign of the iconic Butterfly House is one of Rana Creek’s most authentic and inspiring projects within the context of adhering to ‘sense of place.’ Perched atop a rocky coastal outcropping on Carmel’s Ocean Front, the landscape design directive was to honor owners Hannah and Kevin Comolli’s vision to capture the rugged organic quality of the shoreline while carving out protected spaces within rock and native planting. Capturing the ‘Golden light blue sky, the smell of ocean and cypress trees while blending the harmony with an ever changing seascape’ became the backdrop for Architect Jamie Bush and Rana Creek’s sustainable landscape redesign of Architect Frank Wynkoop’s 1951 Butterfly House. https://www.architecturaldigest.com/story/ad-goes-inside-carmels-iconic-butterfly-house #livingsystems #livingarchitecture #sustainablelandscaping #jamiebushco #ranacreekdesign #paulkephart #frankwynkoop #butterflyhouse #carmelbythesea #nativehabitat #senceofplace #organiclandscapes

Ever wonder what is inside of one of these bio-filters? Surface area......lots and lots of tiny beads that are manufactured to maximize the amount of surface area of each bead. This surface area provides a place for bacteria to colonize and be sheltered from the rest of the pond. The beads in the case of this particular bio-filter also provide a place for solids such as uneaten fish food, and fish poop to get trapped and held onto until the filter is backwashed, in which case this old fish poop, and other small debris get automatically washed out of the beads via pressure from existing pump and discharged on your garden for extra happy plants! #recycle #fish #poopy #pond #koi #biofilter #waterfall #waterquality #bacteria #nitrofication #mechanical #biological #livingsystems #bayarea #landscapearchitecture

“Creativity involves not only years of conscious preparation and training but unconscious preparation as well. This incubation period is essential to allow the subconscious assimilation and incorporation of one’s influences and sources, to reorganize and synthesize them into something of one’s own…. The essential element in these realms of retaining and appropriating versus assimilating and incorporating is one of depth, of meaning, of active and personal involvement.” Learn more: Oliver Sacks.

The PCI Coaching Model I am trained in is grounded in #positivepsychology , #ecological principles for #livingsystems , and the #appreciativeinquiry #framework In my group Dreamers and Givers (Copyright 2018 Amanda Tinnin) I utilize what I have learned as a #pcicertified #parentcoach to help women achieve their dreams from finding a job, learning a new skill to feeling in a better place than yesterday. Description: Dreamers and Givers© is so much more than a group of female leaders helping each other accomplish their goals through David Cooperrider's Appreciative Inquiry framework (the first three steps are seen in the meme with adapted terms from the original 4D Model of Discover Dream Design and Destiny). #dreamersandgivers is about obliterating the idea that we must tear each other down to succeed. We live in an interdependent world. It's time for women to harness their incredible power to transform themselves and their communities through their many gifts! Welcome to an intentional community of women united in breaking down barriers, lifting others, extending kindness, and helping each other to realize our collective dreams! #womenunited #ladiesgroups #shareskills Copyright 2018 Amanda Tinnin This group is only #inabudhabi for now and open to every woman!

Ahhhhh! The power of #massage , and getting work done! For all my LMT friends out there, remember: #MassageTherapy is MANUAL LABOR! Rest appropriately! Massage lore: Energy transfer between humans as researched by the #heartmathinstitute "... non-linear #stochastic residence is discussed as a mechanism by which weak coherent electromagnetic fields such as those generated by the heart of an individual in the #caring state may be detected and amplified by biological tissue and potentially produce measurable effect in #livingsystems. One implication of the effects of therapeutic techniques involving contact or proximity between practitioner and patient could be amplified by the practitioners consciously adopting a sincere caring attitude and that's introducing increased coherence into their cardiac field." #portlandmassagearts #science #touchscience #massage #chairmassage #heartmath #heartmathinstitute #selfcare #health #healing #healingarts #corporatewellness
