Not only will the green wall (living wall), installed at Nova Scotia Community College‘s (NSCC) Center for the Built Environment, bring a shade of green to the Waterfront Campus, it will also create habitat for numerous creatures and purify the air as well. Laden with no less than a 7,000 plants, the wall will be a breathing canvas that changes with every season.
Dr. Joan McArthur-Blair, NSCC president, says…
This living wall demonstrates the capacity of the Centre for the Built Environment to help Nova Scotians study the renewable energy and green technologies that are essential to our sustainable future.
When Sue Sirrs, the landscape artist, was asked to suggest a suitable green wall for the center, she finalized the “made-in-Nova Scotia solution” after testing some five planting systems from across the world.
