What an impressive living wall. Awesome! It's hard for me to believe that it is at an elementary school in Boston. I'm curious to know if it is meant to live year round in cold climate Boston. In any case, these kids are learning some good earth science stuff.
A little bit of research about Josiah Quincy Elementary School reveals that it is one of the top public schools in Massachusetts.
The Josiah Quincy School, whose history of educating the children in Boston goes back to the mid-1800's, is ranked consistently among the top public schools in Massachusetts. The school, with its striking mural, is a landmark in Chinatown in the very heart of the city. Josiah Quincy draws upon the energy of its surrounding neighborhoods and the diversity of its students to create a vibrant center for learning that seeks to prepare young people for global citizenship. via website
Josiah Quincy Elementary School (JQES) hosted an opening ceremony of its “living wall” schoolyard beautification project on Tuesday, June 12 from 1-2pm at the school. The “living wall” is a vertical garden installed on the Oak Street side of the school building, surrounded by recycled benches for public use. The living wall will serve as the anchor for an environmental project to support existing earth science curriculum objectives for JQES students.
