Green infrastructure is a cost-effective, resilient approach to managing wet weather impacts that provides many community benefits. Through Greening Up: A Green Infrastructure Series, Horticulture Educator Austin Little will explore the important role green infrastructure systems plays in improving the built environment by managing storm water, reducing energy costs, increasing green space, and many other benefits.
Green walls, also known as living walls, are an exciting and engaging green infrastructure that can be seen in public spaces, schools, businesses, and even homes. During the third installment of the series, Little discusses the benefits of green walls and how they work and will lead a virtual tour of a green wall. There is no cost to attend but registration is required.
