Chain Link Fence Solution

This weekend Greenlab led a green wall workshop with the Gowanus Canal Conservancy! I collaborated with Alexandria Donati on the design and planning of the gabion modules that are now adorning the chain link fence at the Salt Lot at the end of Second Avenue near the Gowanus Canal. With the help of 15+ volunteers we built and installed 30 modules! The modules are made from a wood, mesh and aluminum frame planted with sedum propagated from our green roof. The day was a huge success - now we need another June rain!
