Got an itchy green thumb for an organic garden but not the space to support it? Introducing the Vertocology Hanging Garden , a vertical structure created by Eugene-based Mark Scott Lavin that’s perfect for urban dwellers. Inspired by the designs of Buckminster Fuller , the Vertecology Hanging Garden was created with a stable geometric form that makes the structure strong, wind-resistant, and easy-to-build. While the space-saving garden system is already available for purchase , supporting the Kickstarter would help fund improvements in the design, such as making the Vertecology Hanging Garden flat-packable and into a self-contained ecosystem able to support soil, aquaponic, and hydroponic growing. + Vertecology Hanging Garden Kickstarter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
