Patrick Blanc was commissioned for a vertical garden on Tacoma’s (local to us) Goodwill-Millgard Work Opportunity Center and gave an hour long talk at a local museum.  The wall construction work was performed by a local business, Teufel Nursery and Landscape Resource Center.  I didn’t know about Blanc’s visit before-hand or I would have attended his talk.  The man is an inspiration.

Here’s a link to the interview he did in Melbourne during the construction of the Melbourne Central Mall vertical garden.

Take a minute and watch this video of vertical walls in Paris.
