Re-Planting the Biodiversity Green Wall

August 08 2017

​After a few months of troubleshooting an irrigation issue, the Green Wall has been successfully re-planted! Continuing to provide a learning opportunity for students in UW’s College of Built Environments, the Green Futures Lab will continue collecting performance data on this living wall, researching its effects and sharing our results with the public, academic, and professional communities. Many thanks to the UW Campus Sustainability Fund, the College of Built Environments, all of our student volunteers, and everyone else who has helped bring the wall back to life.
