The living wall is located in the waiting room of the Services for Seniors program of the Aline-Chrétien Health Hub, a unique and innovative model that brings a wide range of specialized and community healthcare services under one roof. Measuring 27 square meters (300 square feet), our living wall representing a butterfly wing is the first of its kind in Canada.
This living wall is a valuable addition to the Aline-Chrétien Health Hub which opened its doors on June 24, 2021, and that all those who see it will appreciate not only its beauty but also the ability of nature to soothe.
We are really proud of this work of art!
"After settling Ms. Brenda (real name) in front of the wall, waiting for her appointment, she exclaimed "Gorgeous!" She told me that the wall brightened her wait".
Living walls for health. 🍃🌱
"A recent experimental study conducted by Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) showed that air-flowing plant walls installed inside offices changed the microbiote affecting the health of employees' skin and enhanced immune system regulation. The effects could already be observed during one month."
