1st week of May at Common Good City Farm
Excited and grateful to be back on the farm!! Many thanks to pachamama for providing us life.
3rd Week of April at Common Good City Farm
Support your local community garden or grow your own food at home. Message me if you’d like help, input, or just someone to talk to about food sovereignty! This is one of the most important things you can be doing right now.
Check out this “Eathouse”! From Landezine.com:
“EATHOUSE A house and garden to eat! That you are able to touch, smell, taste, seed, weed, and harvest! EATHOUSE is a house in a garden that attracts visitors with delicious vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. We want to seduce people and make them taste the edible garden and the eatable house. EATHOUSE has a temporary character; it lasts a summer season. This is why all the materials used in EATHOUSE can be re-used for a new season of EATHOUSE at a different spot.
EATHOUSE consists of a modular system of plain plastic crates. These crates are used in the agricultural industry to harvest, transport and exhibit fruit and vegetables in combination with a scaffold system. With this system vertical green becomes accessible for everyone; you can make your own vegetable garden on the wall of your balcony or on the roof of your garden shed!”
Awesome, right?? Click the link above and read the original article and check out some other photos of this edible shed!
Wonderful Window Gardens.
Not to worry if you don’t have a roof or even a fire escape and want to do some urban gardening. Check out this solution from Paris-based design collective Barreau&Charbonnet. As reported in The Atlantic:
They offer the Volet Végétal, a system of planters that uses a drawbridge-like contraption to utilize the space directly outside an apartment window. Rows of custom-sized planters are fitted into a wooden frame that is then mounted against the windowsill. A pulley system allows one to pivot the entire frame horizontally, extending five feet perpendicular to the window. To water, trim, and harvest the plants, one simply reels the planters back into a vertical position for easy access. In colder months, the entire frame can be moved indoors, serving as a free-standing indoor garden. As Natalia Repolovsky mentioned on Shoebox Dwelling, the Volet Végétal functions much like an obsolete fire escape, extending access to that precious commodity we call space beyond the small interiors of many city apartments.
