Founded in 2010, Ginkgo Sustainability was born out of a love for the environment and a passion for sustainable business. It is driven by the mission to connect the living and built environments through the installation of living roofs and the installation and manufacture of living walls. Since its founding, the company has completed over 250 green roofing projects and has been developing its GingkoWalls division to establish a strong foothold in the living wall market.

Gingko Sustainability generously donated soil mixes for last year's Annual Plant Fair and Garden Projects.
