    p.s. the fern panel reminded me of a lost native-plant paradise i recently ran into in the suburban hills of belmont :)

    Glad to hear that! That is exactly what we would like people to think of when they see these. That is also where I get my inspiration from when selecting plants. To answer you other question: this particular application probably wouldn’t work for low-income projects but we have also developed simpler, low-tech systems that might work. We’re trying to find ways to enable people in very dense areas to grow herbs and edibles and also providing some much needed green space.
