A green roof for outdoor kitchen May 23, 2017

Over the last year or so, we’ve been creating a space where we can cook outdoors. Our outdoor kitchen has two working earth ovens, a fire pit and space to prepare food. We’ve recently built a roof to provide some shelter from the elements.

Today, we’ve been adding a living, green roof. The ‘carpets’ of alpine plants have taken a year to prepare: capillary mats have been planted up with a range of plants, cultivated here at Martineau Gardens by the Garden Volunteers team.
