Grace Zhang, Britney Zhao – Living Green Wall at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School

Date grant awarded: January 12, 2019

Grace Zhang and Britney Zhao are seniors at the Acton-Boxborough Regional High School in Acton, Massachusetts. Passionate about improving their school’s mental health and aesthetic, they are creating a new green space inside the main academic building. In this space, there will be a seating area centered around a living green wall.

This project addresses the biophilia hypothesis, which states that humans naturally gravitate towards other living things, such as plants. Grace and Britney hope to provide a comfortable addition to the school they love!
