Green Graffiti with EYA

Kristi­na Parusel from the Envi­ron­men­tal Youth Alliance met with me on Fri­day to help build a small-scale liv­ing wall at the Bulk­head. The liv­ing walls are part of the EYA Green Graf­fiti pro­gram which takes urban agri­cul­ture ver­ti­cal. Using an alu­minum unit that con­tains 24, 6″ x 6″ cubes, fruit, veg­eta­bles and herbs can be grown. I was sur­prised when Kristi­na told me that they’ve suc­cess­fully grown toma­toes, beets and cab­bages in these small 6″ x 6″ cubes.
