Urban Gardens 2011 Roundup!

December 18, 2011 by

Wow, we sure had fun this year! From the world’s largest hanging flower pot to a mini vertical garden…gardens sprouting atop city busses and those on parking poles…The High Line in New York and its Parisian cousin…partying in a Chicago edible garden…lollipops you can grow and tables that glow…a restaurant’s rooftop farm and one in a box…a 93 year-old dumpster diving gardener and kids growing food in a school farm lab…designer eco-chic houses for dogs, solar chicken coops, and urban diggs for bees…sumptuous botanical wall paintings and something to slip over your balcony…we had ’em all.
