Students pose in front of living plant wall.

Second grade students at Oak Ridge Elementary School of Leadership, Environmental and Health Sciences worked with high school students from the School of Environmental Studies Oct. 11 to complete a living plant wall art installation. The living plant wall is located in the newly opened addition at Oak Ridge and features 224 individual plants. The installation was designed by artist-in-residence Mike McCullough, with help from the 2nd graders. Its purpose is to bring the outdoors inside for young learners. The project was funded by the Oak Ridge PTO and contributions from the school community.
