Mini Gardens To Go

Alive Structures' Planter

Marni Horwitz's company, Alive Structures, has spent the last three years greening buildings around New York City with garden roofs and walls. My favorite of its works: the East Village's Wild Project, a gallery and performance space where the rooftop has been transformed with ground covering, wild chives and mint. (There's even a blueberry bush!) The company has also been selling planters, each custom-designed and filled with an array of plants. This spring, they began mixing in edibles like purple cabbage, oregano and strawberries with the ornamentals. Delicious! You can buy these edible gardens at places like the Brooklyn Flea or at the company's Brooklyn offices.
