Explosion of Blooms!
June 23, 2009
Wow, things are popping in the Lot Garden. We’ve dabbled, nibbled, and mixed our parking lot flowers with those of local farm grown flowers and foods but as of last week….
We delivered our first 100% ‘City Grown’ floral arrangement to one of our restaurant clients. That felt good….
Rainy Day Planting
May 3, 2009
Our first day of planting was perfect. The rain lightly fell as our plants moved from their 4” containers into their new homes: 15 gallon containers.
Very soon they’ll be giving our next door neighbors, including a couple of car repair shops, a nice green view!
On Solid Ground
April 23, 2009
Our ideas grew too fast, too big, and off the roof right on to an empty parking lot!
Our new home.
The good news: the Roof is Still Green. The Workspace ltd roof garden continues to flourish!
Meanwhile, Emily (from Boxwood Olive), and I (Baylor from Lila B.) moved into a big old parking lot. It offers us ground level access (phew! 50+ stairs, 80+ containers, and 6 yards of soil was daunting to not only our legs but to the roof!), 2 dogs, a large gate, plenty-o-sun, hip company (and a hip company!), water access and more.
Thanks to Lauren, owner of Kaboom Productions, for inviting us in. Her office building occupies a large lot in the Dogpatch area of San Francisco, CA. We’ll be greening up her office while growing our wares.
Emily will focus on sowing seeds and growing…
