Daily Garden: Maureen & Trish’s Design Plot

January 6, 2012

I am so excited for these ladies, and given their obvious high level of general chutzpah I think that we have probably been best friends in a past life (and perhaps need to become BFFs in this one).   Their story is simple, they moved their design business to a new building in Greenpoint Brooklyn (NY) and found out that their landlord was going to lease the empty lot next door to become a parking pad.   So they stepped in and with a kickstarter campaign raised over $23,000 to take over the lease and create an urban community garden. Rock on!

Note: for some reason video embedding is being a bit funky today — so I am going to have to send you here to check out their awesome video about the project.

You can follow their progress (as I will be doing) on their tumblr blog and on their facebook page and on their business site – domestic construction.

Their plans involve a place to grow food – complete with geodesic greenhouse for winter production, a bunny hut, and what they are calling a lounging hill (because Greenpark apparently doesn’t have enough hills — and quite frankly we all know every garden needs a lounging spot and place to take it all in).
