Growing covered space, for teaching, playing, and waiting parents.
An outdoor classroom with our unique living roof – a roof planted for biodiversity, with on-roof habitats for beetles, solitary bees, and other invertebrates, and additional nesting for birds and bats.
Wall-fixed wildlife habitat panels add further nesting, overwintering and forage for insects.
Wild, not manicured, and reflecting the seasons, the roof is an area for plants, insects and birds, that can be seen but doesn’t get disturbed frequently, and is free from herbicide use.
Simple to maintain, and designed to let wild flowers and plants flourish, the roof is not intended to be gardened, but benefits from removing any unwanted plants (from a low stepladder) once or twice a year.
An outdoor classroom’s green roof and habitat panels can be a starting point to talking about the local wildlife, explaining the benefits plants and wildlife contribute, the importance of biodiversity, and the need for spaces and habitat for plants, insects and animals. And the benefits of re-using reclaimed or recycled materials can be highlighted too.
