In October, the Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health (IFNH) at Rutgers University will open, and a breathtaking highlight will become public knowledge. The award-winning structure under construction at Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences is home to the largest interior living wall in the state… Measuring 40 feet tall by 33 feet wide, the living wall is the creation of EcoWalls, a business founded by Rutgers alumni Michael Coraggio and Ryan Burrows, both of Flemington. Coraggio received his degree in landscape architecture, while Burrows earned a master’s degree in ecology and evolution… A vertical garden design and installation company that was part of the Rutgers Business Incubator program housed at the Rutgers EcoComplex in Bordentown, EcoWalls was founded in 2008… For Coraggio and Burrows, the living wall on the Cook College campus is a "coming home" for the two. Life partners for 12 years, both credit their alma mater with inspiring and enabling them to do what they do.
