Running over the weekend of 24-25 October, this year we’ll be hosted on the Saturday at the Organic Roofs office and workshop in Shoreham. There are real green roofs to see close up, and plenty of materials to get your hands on…and an amazing view of the harbour to boot! Or is that ‘to boat’.

Building Green will be there with a stand, a ‘flowery building’ competition for kids, and we will be doing a free talk on how to DIY small shed green roofs.

We’ll be signing people up for the DIY Green Roof weekend.

We’ll also be talking about the importance of Madeira Drive green wall, and hoping to make new contacts that can help promote green roofs and living walls in the city.

“the tutors were great and we saw some interesting examples of green roofs, nice people on the course and a really nice atmosphere”

“Having more than one course leader with different specialties relevant to the course meant the content was varied but still in depth.”
