Edible walls

The Dirt
recently posted about the benefits of green walls (like green roofs, but vertical), highlighting their potential for urban farming. I think that while it's a really cool idea it definitely isn't for every situation. Like for me right now. See, while I wish I could try this out, I don't have a good place for it. I don't want to completely block my view out of the sliding glass doors, and I don't think they'd get enough sun if I put them to the side.

But, if I ever get to build a house or do a major renovation, green walls will definitely be on my "must have" list!


  1. Hi Erin,
    I've seen this same type vertical gardening demonstrated at the Chicago Botanic Garden. It's an interesting concept. Oh, and there's an award waiting for you on my blog. Cheers!
