A new green wall initiative started at the Sensorica Montreal lab in January 2019. This will be an automated and connected (sending data and receiving commands via the Internet) wall. 

Its functions will be:
  • Separation wall, movable (on wheels)
  • Air purifier (active system circulating air through the growing medium)
  • Grow edible plants (main herbs used in the kitchen)
  • Aesthetics (very beautiful, wait and see...)
Materials used for its construction will be biodegradable and recycled

Bruce, core member of the project, is a specialist in horticulture, very knowledgeable about plants and growing media. Today, him and Tibi went to the some specialized stores to get the main soil ingredients and a few plants to build the first experimental pots.  

The 3D design of the green wall structure is under development. Please consult the design document or go to project page for more info
