NCSU Landscape Architecture student Marie Hermansson has made an interesting proposal related to small-scale vertical gardening utilized to provide fresh food in urban settings: “G.T.G. is a self-contained mini hydroponic greenhouse the size of a vending machine; in fact that’s exactly what G.T.G. is—a very green vending machine. The purpose behind the project is partly to provide fresh produce on-site as well as provide education about a healthy diet. G.T.G. would showcase how to grow and provide great food in places where there is poor soil or no soil. On the accompanying web site community members would have an active role in deciding what their G.T.G. system would grow.”
