Friday Film:: Laban Rubble Green Roof
In this edition of Friday Film, British green roof expert Dusty Gedge takes us on a tour of this 12 year old green roof designed to replicate the brownfield sites of London. The roof is awash in colors of many wildflowers and is full of a variety of insects. Dusty narrates this visit and highlights the various plants while offering insight into green roof design and plant selection.
From the video description:
Dusty Gedge pays one of his regular visits to the original ‘rubble’, brown, green roof on the Laban Dance Centre in Deptford London. The roof is a profusion of colour and wildflowers and sedums. The film features bees, grasshoppers, ladybirds and a range of brownfield wildflowers. And in typical style is a slightly irreverent commentary on green roofs.
She is currently writing a book about urban nature to be published by Mountaineers Books in 2019.
