Livingroofs.org would like to thank
Peter Massini, Jill Goddard, James Farrell, Rachael Hill, John Newton and Jamie Dean for their support in getting green roofs happening in London. Without their enthusiasm and energy over the past 10 years, our different approaches to green roofs might never have left the ground.
Peter Allnutt, Nick Ridout, Mark Harris and Dr Alun Rhys-Tarr, green roof manufacturers and suppliers for their encouragement, commitment, and support.
Stephan Brenneisen in Switzerland who has been a real catalyst for much of our work on biodiversity and green roofs, and a joy to work with.
