Bicycle Window Box – For the transient gardener

Two great things that (don’t) go great together:

Bicycle Window Box- For the transient gardener.

A window box for the cyclist who is always on the move, or cycle tourist needing nutritious strawberries and beansprouts..

or simply for someone without a garden….or a moron,(like me).

(via Instructables.)

No, seriously – on a purely practical level I don’t think these go together. The window box would be very heavy, and whizzing around would be a bit rough on young seedlings. But I love it visually, conceptually, aesthetically…

A Farm Grows in Brooklyn – on a Rooftop

Check out this project to build a 1-acre working vegetable farm, producing local produce for Brooklyn, on a rooftop.

Aside from the intrinsic interest of the project – and the importance of urban agriculture to creating sustainable cities and a sustainable society – the “Kickstarter” site is an interesting experiment in alternative funding.

We love… community gardens.

The Hayes Valley Neighborhood PARKS Group (HVNPG) is an ethnically and economically diverse group committed to fostering neighborhood participation, pride, and environmental stewardship for the parks and recreation areas in the Hayes Valley-Western Addition of San Francisco. We accomplish our mission through programs and projects that empower all residents, youth, and their families to be healthy and safe, and to positively impact their community. Our programs engage, recreate, and educate children, families, and other residents.

The 400 Blows

zerode

is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.

 

What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
