Have Travel, Will Garden: Chicago Plants Rail Car

February 9, 2010 by

The Mobile Garden, recently approved by the Chicago Transit Authority, will add green space to the windy city as straphangers enjoy a flatcar train garden during their commutes. The moving urban garden, to become a part of regular transit service, will be planted with native plant species requiring little water and low maintenance. Artist Joe Baldwin’s concept is intended to highlight the importance of native plants in the community and “get people to think about the possibilities of enhancing green space in the city” just as container gardens have been for years.
