Talk about having baggage. But this is the good kind–the bringing of your own personal and cultural gardening personality with you wherever you go.

Gionatta Gatto, of the Design Academy Eindhoven Graduation Project, has unveiled Urban Buds, a design project, according to the creator, “on the theme of urban agriculture and cultural comunication in the context of public spaces.”

Using the suitcase as a metaphor for our individual cultural backgrounds, Gatto has seeded and planted these moveable planters with about thirty-six different plants, each growing vertically along the fabric. The project is intended to fill vacant spaces with vegetable gardens while inspiring socialization by cultivating new relationships among gardeners.
