DIOR SCHOOL INCURSIONS

Helped run a series of school incursion activities as an employee of Do it on the Roof. Activities were for primary school children, and designed to engage them with ideas around urban ecology and conservation. After being introduced to the concept and componentry of green walls and roofs (via the portable rover trailer), children were tasked with working in teams to use aerial maps to determine the potential for green infrastructure in their own schools. This activity required communicating complex concepts around ecology, horticulture and green infrastructure to a young audience. Expert horticultural knowledge was required not only when working with the children, but as the horticulturalist for the activity when working with other employees and teachers.
