Portable Gardens

Italian designer Gionata Gatto has more than a green thumb. Inspired by small scape gardening, culture and beauty, his sustaino idea has taken gardening to a whole new level – portable with style.Users can grow vegetables and fruits on each side of the structure; approximately 36-plants can be grown vertically. We urbanites call them "urbanbuds" to reference the portable, vertical nature of green modern day gardening. Shaped like a suitcase and designed for easy watering, weeding, mobility and moisture and soil control through proper potting. This could offer new inspiration for inner city gardening, portable farmer's market in tight NYC-style streets and backyard educational workshops. Go Gatto! Go Sustaino!
