In conjunction with the exhibition Combined Overflow on view now at Proteus Gowanus, Greenlab Studio is hosting a build-it-yourself workshop at the Gowanus Canal Conservancy Salt Lot on Saturday, May 31 from 12 PM - 3 PM where participants will learn how to construct a square foot stormwater garden module. Come out and learn how to build these gardens and return home with a module of your own!
As featured in the April 2014 issue of Dwell Magazine, these stormwater garden modules can be installed on any outdoor vertical surface such as a fence, a brick wall, or even a fire escape. In addition to providing valuable green space in any urban environment, they help capture rainwater before it enters our frequently overburdened stormwater system.
$50 registration fee, $40 for GCC members. All tools and materials are provided.
