Chelsea New Wild Garden
I'm not about to move my studio into a shipping container in my backyard, but it looks cool, though it might be nice to have a studio that opens up directly into the garden.
My favorite feature is obviously the dry-stacked stone walls. I thought they were created as works of art using found objects, but to know that their purpose is to help shelter bugs & bees made it even better for me. This is not an option for folks with kids that play in a yard/garden, but anything that can be done in an urban setting to encourage the natural habitat of bugs, bees & birds and other pollinators is cool in my book. We've done so much to drive them out (expanses of grass!). And that it looks like art? Way cooler.
|Love the look of the walls with bug condos.|
|Succulents were a nice touch.|
|This is what the crowds looked like around each display. Some were six or seven people deep.|
