Do it yourself

Most homes can have green walls and green roofs. Doing your own DIY projects is a great way to learn about the potential of these techniques, and enhance the environment around you.

Join our DIY Green Roof course, run in partnership with Organic Roofs and Brighton Permaculture Trust, and learn how to do it yourself!
