This academic year, several of the BSc Architecture and Environmental Design students [who are part of the Westminster Environmental Society] and academics have been collaborating with Square Mile Farms in the creation of a hydroponic green wall for the production of food.
This project is the result of the successful application to the Westminster Green Fund.
The wall was installed in the entrance of Marylebone campus on Thursday, May 26th and will be ready for the first harvest after 4 weeks. The installation process was lead by students and Square Mile Farms team. The Vice Chancellor Peter Bonfield also visited the site and chatted to the team.
The official launch and the first harvest are scheduled for June 24th. To attend, please register here.
From September, the BSc Architecture and Environmental Design students will take charge of the maintenance and harvesting of the wall.
Congratulations to all involved!
