"I believe it's the first of its kind having living plants growing on top of a car," said Lecturer Barrie Duesbury.

"We would like to thank Erick Mackay from Irrigatia who very kindly sponsored our learners' project. With the solar automatic watering system the weather-responsive smart irrigation controller is truly an eco car."
