  • A project that integrates a student design with community led bottom up assembly. Built on a site contaminated by the presence of knot-weed, the garden consists of hovering planters at varied heights that plug into an elevated rain-water harvesting system. Each is built and stewarded by an individual family in the surrounding community.

New Additions: Phase 02

Thanks to popular demand new boxes will be added on the the north-east side of the gardens. In addition we are now crowd-funding a design of a soak-away pool that will use reed beds to filter water for reuse.
