Lee I read through your boards, and my concern is this - you will need to grow a large number of plants at a very quick rate in order to allow the children to pick leaves every time they wash their hands. If you have a school with 50 children, and they each wash their hands three times a day, they could be picking 150 leaves a day. Do you know how quickly these plants grow? Do you know how many children are in the average village school?
If the grey water has sand mixed into it from the exfoliating process, will the sand dropping on the plants affect the plants in any negative ways?

Thank you Bridget for your comment and for going over my boards. I completely understand your concerns and share them. I am in the process of solving these issues.
The design has evolved quite a lot since the mid semester review, and I will post my current ideas very soon. I will inform you of my progress and solutions through the blog.
