First year MLA students from the Department of Landscape Architecture assisted Master of Urban Planning student Carlos Vela (JC) in the wrapping of plants in preparation for Living Wall #2. The process included removing plants from containers, removing soil, cutting back roots and plant shoots as needed, wrapping the plants in the provided felt squares and securing the wrapped root ball with a rubber band. The students enjoyed getting their hands full of dirt and working on a real project. Participants included: Ning, Siman, Yang, Bitong, Yao, Yue, David Danielson, Wang, Yucheng, Zhang, Yixiun, and Juan Carlos Vela (JC).
