Alive Structures -  Mini Gardens

Visit Website

The LIC-based team of crafty environmentalists is recreating its rooftop gardens in miniaturized form.

Originally constructed as educational tools to show would-be clients how to landscape urban spaces, the little green squares soon became the talk of the tabletop.

Each lightweight planter is made entirely from local materials like recycled paper, concrete, and sand; then it’s planted with sweet little succulents, saxifrage, and native species.

Who needs cut flowers? These sustainable beauties are in for the long haul and need watering only once a week.

Mini Gardens available at Sustainable NYC
139 Avenue A
(at 9th Street)
