Lord Beaverbrook - 2010

Contact: Maureen Pettigrew

Team Type: Club

Campaign Goal:

To fund raise to build a prototype of a Living Wall, build the Living Wall and display it for students, staff and the community to see. To work towards building a larger Living Wall next year.




What did we do?

  • Brain stormed ideas
  • Designed Living Wall on paper and 3D using Google Sketch up
  • Built mock up using cardboard
  • Building Living Wall – building construction students
  • Filling with plants
  • Display
  • Next year build a bigger Living Wall with funding we have received


The Best Part

Working together on a joint project!


Advice

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.


Additional Info

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.
