Living Walls, Urban Gardens and going Greener through the year…
2011 has been a fabulush year for gardening vertically (and horizontally for that matter). We’ve been very bust bees this year pollinating all kind of projects–we did a HUGE and gorgeous living wall at the Chelsea Flower show, we worked with National Geographic on a Living Column in London,we collaborated with hundreds of schools to get kids gardening, we met Dudley and Omar and taught them how to garden–we went Mini and went green(er!) with our new green pocket–and inspired urban dwellers everywhere to Garden UP (including me!!):
I never really thought that I could become a good gardener–grow my own food and keep plants alive (especially really delicate ones like cilantro.) But I was dead wrong. I put my mind and my Pockets to it this year and not only did I grow cilantro, but I grew whole entire meals! Admittedly, I killed a couple of green friends along the way, but all in all I’d say that last years’ resolution can be considered accomplished. I am an urban gardener. Wait lemme say that a little louder I AM AN URBAN GARDENER! I mean, I grew cauliflower for goodness sake–right in my L’il Meadow. I am very, very proud.
So, as we enter into the new year, if you never thought that you garden, or never thought that you had the space–it’s time to grow up– up a wall that is. Make a resolution that you can keep, and eat, and that can make your home look really pretty.
That’s all. See y’all next week. Have an amazing new year my friends.
