Help Conscious Crusaders Build a Green Living Wall on Wilmington's Ne Urban Farm
Join team Conscious Crusaders, sponsored by Fusions Taster's Choice, competing in the 2nd Annual Delaware Charity Challenge in support of Conscious Connections Inc. (CCI) and the Northeast Urban Farm located at 22 E. 23rd St. in Wilmington. CCI and the NE Urban Farm have been operating since 2012 with plans and projects in the works aimed at improving Wilmington communities through greening and agriculture. CCI is in need of funding to build a Green Wall to be located at the entrance of the NE Urban Farm. The NE Urban Farm is a vital component in CCI's efforts in improving blighted Wilmington communities by increasing accessibility to fresh, healthy food, providing green recreational space for community members, offering economic, job creating opportunities, and engaging youth in educational programming.
The Green Wall will be a multifunctional tool used to increase growing space for food and flowers, provide an additional tool for education, and create a greener more attractive recreational space. The Green Wall (see example in photos) will be a living wall located on the facade of the NE Urban Farm. The Green Wall is a small project that will be highly effective at generating more public interest and increasing the aesthetic appeal in the neighborhood. The estimated cost of the project is $3765.00.
The Cost Breakdown
Attach Wood Studs to posts/ Labor $800/ Materials $185 Attach wood pallets to studs/ Labor $900 Brackets $60 30 pallets/Materials $100 Screws $35 6 Solid pieces of plywood (Murals)/ Labor $250/ Materials $200 3 Artists for 2 murals each/ Labor $300 per artist Block walk way/ Labor $250/ Materials $85
