Vertical Gardening


I know my home city is quite progressive, but still, I was surprised to read that the local government of Amsterdam is subsidizing (!) large scale installations of vertical gardens. Now how is that! With a minimum of 40sqm the local government will pay up to 20.000 euro's (half of the total installation costs). Go Amsterdam!
Hopefully, the French botanist Patrick Blanc can be commissioned. On his site you can view the impressive list of his projects around the world.

Indoors you can install your own vertical garden with Woolly Pockets from the US. Flora Grubs  installation below is too big for my living room, but is an excellent source of inspiration nonetheless.
