10 December 2019 • Green Roofs, Green Walls

CERES Green roofs, Green Walls offers learners a robust introduction to the growing industry in greening urban areas. Over the 8 weeks the course delivers a comprehensive assessment of the many considerations needed to design, develop and maintain green roofs and walls in their diverse applications and styles. The course is well suited to people of diverse educational experiences and levels of familiarity with horticulture, landscaping and conservation. The variety of trainers and industry leaders provided a good level of support during the practical activities and implementation. CERES' Enviroment park is a unique learning environment and community and I'd recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn a little more about greening urban landscapes.
