    Really good video! But watch out! Every square metre of plants can be up to 10Kg extra weight after rainfall! Make sure you speak with the buildings owner before you attempt this at home. Pun intended :)

    I would prefer a roof that's uniformly green and not in patches of green.

    I would think you could make the layer just a little thicker and grow ground cover strawberries and other shallow root fruit bearing plants…pick up one of those quick shelters and use clear poly plastic instead of the normal tarp and you got a makeshift greenhouse thats extremely lightweight on the roof…just in case the fruiting plants need additional warmth/shelter than the roof can provide while their roots are taking hold…Just a thought.

    Erm, it's spelled humus. I clicked on the video expecting a chick pea/garlic/herb garden for making hummus: the middle eastern dip.
