Denver Post Article

The living wall designed and installed by Lively Elements, LLC was featured in the Denver Post April 10th, 2011. Lively Elements worked with the location selected by the architects, Semple Brown Design and the builder, CMC Group to provide the 14 foot wide living wall.

Some excerpts from the article:

The dining hall at Kent Denver School features a "living wall" with 576 plants, including philodendron and kangaroo fern, plus thyme, basil and other herbs used in cooking there." (Cyrus McCrimmon, The Denver Post)

"It's the first thing kids see, setting the tone and sending a message right out of the gate," said Walker.

Just ahead from that is an indoor "living wall," a 14-by-18 foot vertical garden where theschool's chefs grow herbs used in cooking. Semple Brown's Dru Schwyhart describes it as a psychic center of the room, a contemporary equivalent to the traditional hearth that mirrors the "cultural values of a new generation."
