Insect hotel with a green roof
When we finished the insect hotel at Armitage it looked, well, a bit unfinished. It's just a nice height so we stuck a mini green roof on top and have planted it up with a variety of herbs. It's in the early years playground so they're already combining looking for creepy crawlies with sampling the textures, smells and tastes of the herbs.
Red Rose Forest gave us some advice on the green roof based on their experience from the Green Streets project.
