Why Lee Evans is inspired by green roofs

Green roofs

Lee Evans of Organic Roofs co-tutors our Green Roofs course. He tells us why he loves teaching participants how to build their own green roof:

"I was a student on this course in 2009 while I was retraining as a carpenter and was inspired to focus my new career on green roofs - which led ultimately to me founding Organic Roofs.

"When asked by Brighton Permaculture Trust to teach on the course, it felt like I'd really come full circle, as I'd been applying the principles I'd started to learn there in my own company.

"The course is really inspiring - we aim to give a solid overview of the principles of green roof design and look in depth at different green roof build ups, as well as offering a 'project surgery' to talk through specific cases.

"Our aim is to enable people to go away with the confidence to tackle DIY projects of their own and the feedback has been very positive so far."
