In the spring of 2015, The University of Cincinnati’s DAAP program invited Urban Blooms give a presentation on green roofs and living walls. Following the lecture, a student approached our living wall specialist and co-founder, Tyler Wolf. She was curious if Urban Blooms could provide a temporary living wall for the Loveland Earth Day Sustainability Expo. She set up a meeting with the event coordinators and her mother, the owner of Tano Bistro.
Urban Blooms was happy to be able to bring a temporary living wall installation to the event. We had a team present at the expo to discuss living walls and to explain their sustainability impact. The Living Wall was even featured as the last stop on the Kids Sustainability Scavenger Hunt.
The kids were asked to take a ‘selfie’ with the wall before being able to collect their scavenger hunt reward – a tomato plant! Urban Blooms is always grateful to be a part of community events such as this. It fills our hearts with joy to be able to make an imprint on young minds, and show the beauty of sustainability.
