Good news in our inbox this morning: CTA has given the mobile garden project a green light to move forward.
What is mobile garden?
that will travel with the train as part of regular service.
We can scarcely think of anything cooler.
mobile garden creator+artist Joe Baldwin visited the roof this summer and told Green Roof Growers about his concept, which germinated in a sustainability and design graduate seminar class at University of Illinois Chicago.
We urged him to consider sub-irrigating the train car and hope he'll call on us to help. We'd also love to see him plant some hardy vegetables, which we can start from seed for him if he wants.
Today we congratulate him on his tenacity in keeping the project alive. Way to go, Joe!
