  • good weather vs bad weather plan

Draft 2
Entire presentation with all three of us on the roof. Start with Ben filming Nick. Nick Gives overview:

  • Green roof layout from each sample to tipping buckets
  • Use of roof water in the future?
  • Data logger stolen

Ben films Jen:

  • Explains which beds have new plant
  • how plant likely got into beds
  • what plant is

Ben hands phone to Nick:

  • Ben discusses soil tests
  • What factors might be the reason for the new plant
  • Discuss fertilization of beds

A lot of what we do for our project depends on what we can accomplish. Live feed needs a camera still
