we were so fortunate to have worked with caitlin and owen black of aloe designs to bring gardening design workshops to the neighbourhood. we'll miss them and all their great advice - good thing they're not too far away...such a pleasure to work with genuine and talented people who are doing what they are truly passionate about - thanks guys! xo
the last workshop had to be one of my faves, fun to see the shop full of littles ones getting their hands in the dirt!

"The Homegirl Cafe will harvest and use the edible goodies from this vertical farm in their cafe, serving hungry Angelenos while giving at-risk and former gang youths an opportunity to become positive and contributing members of society. I love how this solar powered cycle of life works so beautifully! Grow On Lovely Woollies!"
"We just got a scoop on a wild living wall up in Seattle! The Hunter Gatherer is a newly renovated bar featuring a 21 foot living wall with a twist: taxidermy animal heads peeking out from behind a green cascade of Pothos plants! The wall was designed and planted by Matt and Amoreena Herbage of Midnight Blossom, an amazing floral design studio in Seattle."

as part of our recap, we also featured stunning handcrafted bird houses and feeders, but are almost sold out so we'll post about them when the new shipment comes shortly!
so many ways to get creative and green up our spaces, sometimes it just takes a little imagination...
