Inside the Rutgers EcoComplex Greenhouse in Florence, a vertical garden is taking shape. The leafy expanses- sprouting with ivies, ferns, orchids, flowering lipstick plants and nearly 120 other species- will eventually grace the interior of Rutgers University’s new Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health and set the record for the largest living wall in New Jersey… "It’s a living tapestry, a living piece of artwork," said Michael Coraggio, CEO and founding principal of EcoWalls, which was tasked with the design and installation of the wall… EcoWalls is a Rutgers-incubated business located on the 500-plus acre campus of the Burlington County Resource Recovery Complex. It was founded in 2007 by Coraggio and Ryan Burrows, both of whom graduated from Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences. They have since expanded into a national company with displays at Walt Disney World, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park and the Philadelphia International Flower Show, among other venues.
