Next ‘DIY Green Roof’ course is taking bookings now!

We’re on for our next DIY course, following the successful weekend led by Building Green and Organic Roofs last year.

Taking place on the weekend of 18-19 October, participants will ‘learn by doing’ – building their own green roofed bird box to take home, visiting green roof projects in Brighton & Hove, and learning about the history, policy and technology of green roofs from leading practitioners.

Really nice comment about the course at the weekend

One of the course participants wrote in to say “I just wanted to write to thank you for the inspirational Green Roof course this weekend; I feel ready (and keen) to start my extension roof and confident that I can! 

I know that a feedback form will be coming but I just wanted you to know just how much I appreciated all the effort that you put into the course which hit the right note on so many levels.”
