Great Greenwall Projects

Oregon has a couple of grand greywater schemes, but they are unlikely to rival this gem simply because they probably won't get built.  The Vancouver, British Columbia airport already has this incredible greenwall up and growing. The Canadians envision greenwalls as one means for greywater treatment. And the Canadians recognize the value of sponsoring research on greywater reuse to the tune of $200,000, something that is unlikely to occur in Oregon given the continuing budget and regulatory challenges.

Canadian musician Tom Cochrane once said "Australia and Canada were settled by adventurers, they had to break new ground. I think that is indelibly etched on our cultural spirit".  As a former Newfoundlander, perhaps this is the reason why I am so open-minded about greywater reuse in Oregon.
