Green roofs for Pollinators
Staff in The Welsh School of Architecture (WSA) have supported Julian Rees of Pollen8 in his successful bid for “Tetto Verde” funding. This funding will enable a number of green roofs to be planted in South Wales, providing safe habitat and forage for pollinators.
One of the projects will involve developing a demonstration green “roof” at ground level for the charity MIND’s venue in Neath. Their previously concrete back yard would be difficult to convert to a conventional garden, but provides an opportunity to use green roof techniques and showcase them at an accessible level.
A proposed planting structure was developed by WSA personnel with plants suitable for green roofs, beneficial for pollinators throughout the season and attractive to people.
