EcoWalls in the Classroom

Share Post

On August 23rd, 2011, the EcoWalls team was chosen by Lafayette College students to participate in the Davis Projects for Peace Grant to build and install a mobile, educational living wall and integrate their green product into the urban classroom at the

(BOGCHS).  The students of Lafayette College selected EcoWalls based on the company’s philosophy and passion for green design and sustainable architecture.

Mr. Steven King, Founder and Director of the Sustainability and Programs at BOGCHS, believes this project based curriculum will, “help young people to become involved in the conversation on sustainability so they can effectively analyze the problems their generation will face”.  To that end, EcoWalls continues to be instrumental in applying and promoting sustainable practices; using their living walls as educational tools to promote environmental understanding and awareness.

      You can look at using a product with a collector. sells a BG8 growing frame with a irrigation collector which will prevent water from messing up your hardwoods.

    Could you please provide the instructions of how to construct the frame etc. this will be perfect for our community breakfast room. Thank you

      The best way to put these frames together without a welder is with treated 2×4’s – if you do have a welder, I suggest welding together a frame from steel.
