A New Kind of Container Garden

I spotted the words gorilla gardening in a recent email from Grist.org, and followed the link to find this most awesome trailer about a truck garden in Brooklyn. What's new about a truck garden?

One of the best uses yet for one of those big old things.

More on The Truck Farm
Visit Wicked Delicate for more films on the Truck Farm and to learn more about what Curt and Ian (I'm not really on a first name basis with them, of course.) are brewing up. FYI, these are the folks who brought you King Corn.

Check out this post at Inhabitat for a ton of good links to Truck Farm and other nifty notions in the Big Apple.
