David Lattomus

Middletown, DE
St. Georges Technical High School

Lattomus’ innovative teaching idea, “Living Wall,” focuses on an urban farming method of growing an indoor garden. The “Living Wall” is an 8-channel vertical wall with reservoirs that distribute nutrient solution to the garden. All of the harvested produce will be used in the school’s full-service restaurant. Students will be actively involved in, and responsible for seeding, germinating and planting herbs and head lettuces into the wall to create a hands-on learning experience around growing produce and sustainable practices in agriculture.
