Oh, I love Whole Foods.
Yes, it’s a bit pricey, and trendy, and hipster, but where else can you buy organic fruit (of which 5 cents per pound will go towards feeding a family of eighteen in Tanzania, or Texarkana, depending on your hemisphere, for a week- and their goat), find hair products that aren’t made with anything but soap (and thus do not actually wash your hair as much as strip it of what little natural lustre you have remaining), get a chair massage (at a dollar per minute- but it’s sooo worth it), drink some really (gag) crazy juice but look so cutting-edge while your doing it, choose whole trade flowers (wrapped in paper that falls apart between the door and your car), stand in briskly moving check-out lines (with people on food stamps purchasing sushi and Camembert cheese), nibble on whole grain cupcakes slathered with whole sugar frosting (but tinted with vegetable dyes- so that’s good), peruse cutting edge magazines (Mother Earth is still being published?), rub shoulders with a visiting celebrity (I’ve traded recipes with John Goodman, Ray Liotta and Cate Blanchett. Well, not really traded, more like stood by them while they where in the melon bin) and get an occasional great idea.
Oh, the Vertical industry of the modern global world!
|Seriously great idea!
Vertical garden using a wood pallet.
The Display Artist at Whole Foods
added a chalk board
to the front.
|Each level is bottomed with an additional
piece of wood and then lined with heavy grade plastic.
Simply turn it on it’s side, add a bottom to each length, line with plastic, and plant.
This is shown positioned on the floor attached to a larger foot board
but could easily be mounted to a wall.
