Art of Espresso Grow Wall

Officially opened in Spring 2019, this modular and easily expandable "Green Wall" addresses the challenges of growing food in an urban environment without disrupting the fast-paced flow of life around it.

Initially developed as the first of a generation, this proof-of-concept system allowed for rapid prototyping and development of various systems including CSA's first auto-watering controls. Furthermore, this grow wall helped bring issues of food insecurity and alternative farming methods into the limelight on campus, as it was installed in a very central location that thousands of students and hundreds of visitors pass on a daily basis.
