We have been running these training days for ten years and this will be out third one in Scotland. Although the workshop is technical, it is chiefly about instilling confidence. The workshops template includes both practical and theoretical sessions. I hoped to also take people out and about to look at potential green roof plants in the vicinity of the workshop venue.
