|Permaculture Green Roof for Rabbit Pen under construction|
Our rabbit hutch has a vegetated roof. Simple permaculture concepts. Rabbits eat clipped forage off their green roof, rabbits grow, rabbits poo, we use the rabbit poo to fertilize and grow more plants on the rabbit hutch green roof, rabbits produce more rabbits and green roof plants feed the babies.

Fortunately, the rabbit hutch green roof was not expensive. In fact, the hutch was built with only recycled stormwater panels, used felt material, wood scraps, old tin sheets and some chicken wire left over from the hen coop.
|Remember, for green roofs on the cheap - structure, soil media and proper plants!|
We had the very best permaculture fertilizer one could have, a gift from the rabbits in return for their 'green' digs.

Green roofs don't have to be expensive. Think - support, innovative soil platform and proper plants.
As for the rabbits, try on a stick with mustard!
