#23: Let’s Build a Living Wall

IMG_2971So you’ve seen the living wall at the airport – a mosaic of lush green plants. And you’ve always wondered how to make one. Well, wonder no more. The last event of our Old Strathcona Greening Project is building a living wall together!

Sunday, August 30 2015
1 – 3 PM
3rd Floor,
Roots on Whyte Community Building
8135 – 102 Street
Refreshments will be provided. Kids and newbies welcome!

Come join in a free workshop to plant a living wall together inside Old Strathcona’s Roots on Whyte community building. The workshop will be led by Axis Mundi Artistry, local makers of beautiful terrariums, necklaces, and other art made out of living plants.

This workshop is the culmination of a year-long project led by Shareable Neighbourhood volunteers to empower residents to be active participants in making our neighbourhood a little greener. With the support of the City of Edmonton and Rotary Club of Edmonton Whyte Avenue, we decided to teach people how to install compost bins, rain barrels, and indoor living walls. With this living wall, we’ll be improving indoor air quality and teaching you how to make your own building a little greener!

Come have fun getting your hands a little dirty with us and build a lasting piece of green art together.

RSVP by emailing shareablen@gmail.com.

This venue is wheelchair accessible, as are the bathrooms.
