The Best Part
Working together on a joint project!
Need lots of time for the building! Need to be very creative and think outside the box.
Comments about the Campaign
Amazing, didn’t know what it is and can hardly wait to see the finished product.
Did We Reach our Goal?
As of June should have the pilot Living Wall built and displayed for all of the community at school to see and appreciate.
What we are most proud of
Able to adapt an idea of a green roof to a living wall due to structural considerations, as well as tackling a project that is really new and inventive.
The entire Ecology Club has worked hard on this. Darshan Tailor and Alex Wright did procure additional funding from Alberta Ecotrust to build a bigger wall for next year. Sara Laba received the funding for the prototype through Conoco Phillips.
