Most people think of buildings as just a collection of cement and steel, pipes and wires. However, buildings can be an active part of your life, neighborhood, and ecosystem.
Living walls can support pollinators and reduce home heating & and cooling costs. Water catchment systems can prevent flooding and erosion while also reducing load on neighborhood water treatment plants. Passive solar heating can make winter days warmer while reducing overall carbon footprint.
In this kit, students learn about living walls and other elements of green architecture as they explore what it means to design a breathing building.
Each kit contains: A living wall kit (stand, holder, soil, seeds), a individual green building stater kit, and experimental notebook, and access to additional online resources.
