Help Expand and Enhance the Green Wall

Students installing parts of the Green WallIn 2019, a group of students started with a simple question: How can we cultivate new green spaces on campus? This idea grew into the Green Space Initiative. Spearheaded by members of the organization Sustainable Spartans, this initiative aimed at adding a unique urban green space at MSU that contributed to beautification of campus while serving as a public demonstration of a sustainability project.  

Working with the MSU Office of Sustainability (OOS) and Infrastructure Planning and Facilities (IPF) Landscape Services, a team of students from Sustainable Spartans officially the installed the “Green Wall” at the MSU Library Bridge near the Spartan Football Stadium. Built to enhance the natural beauty and peaceful environment around the Red Cedar River, the Green Wall consists of two 60-foot long vertical garden systems lining the walls of the bridge with planter boxes made from recycled automobile plastic. The walls were designed to integrate with the university’s landscaping seasonal color scheme and gardens.

Gifts to the Green Wall Expansion Fund Will Enhance the future of the Green Wall!

Since its installation, the Green Wall has become a place that all members of the Spartan community enjoy. 

This campaign aims to raise a total of $20,000 to help fund the expansion and enhancement of the Green Wall, of which IPF will match dollar-for-dollar. Help us raise the first $5,000 for this project and double your impact by making a gift today!

Envisioned as a pilot project for future expansion, IPF Landscape Services and Sustainable Spartans are currently raising funds through this project to expand the Green Wall so it will stretch across a larger portion of the Library Bridge and add an irrigation system to the planting boxes which will ensure that the Green Wall will remain vibrant and beautiful throughout the seasons.

How Your Donation Makes a Difference!

Gifts to this project will be used to purchase supplies and equipment necessary for the expansion and cover planning and design costs. Make a gift today that will further enhance this iconic landmark for future for Spartans to learn from and enjoy.
