Continuing Education Programs
Participants will gain knowledge regarding the differences present in various living walls (also known as greenwalls) systems and how those systems are appropriate for differing needs. Instruction will be given in best practice and use of living walls so that upon completion they will be able to offer the highest quality service available. Participants will also learn how biophilic design factors profoundly affect the well-being and overall profitability of the modern built environment.
This program examines the positive affects biophilic design has on human behavior, including wellbeing and productivity. These positive effects are quantified and the economic case studies are summarized. The three categories of biophilic design are identified. The WELL Building Certification standard as it applies to biophilia is defined and moss walls are discussed in detail as an affordable way of incorporating biophilic design into interior environments.
Attendees will leave with the knowledge of how living green walls bring the research-based benefits of biophilic design and its positive effect on human well-being and productivity into the built environment, and the critical design considerations when specifying a high-performing and sustainable living green wall.

What Client’s Say
First impressions are critical in the hospitality business. We use spectacular plant presentations in the hotel lobby and throughout our grounds to make a very dramatic, very impressive statement. Live greenery differentiates our brand.
Living plants are an inexpensive, powerful tool for interior spaces, offering life and beauty. I always try to incorporate live plants—especially colorful ones—into my projects, no matter what the project budget is…they are the perfect finishing touch.
