Vertical Play Farm
Posted on July 24, 2012 by Be Chicagood
A “vertical play farm” concept from Chicago’s Architecture for Humanity is among the finalists for a playground design challenge on GOODmaker. Chicago’s Architecture for Humanity had set out to re-imagine a public space with a $1000 budget on the Good’s GOODmaker challenge to improve neighborhood playgrounds. Check out the blurb below to find out more about their awesome idea!
It blends typical playground equipment with vertical gardening. By combining these two elements, a new type of interaction is created between children and gardening, making gardening fun and learning hands on. We also envision the Vertical Play Farm will create excitement and interest within the local community. Kids, parents and grandparents will visit the Vertical Play Farm together, to not only play but also check on the fruits, vegetables and flowers they planted.
Get on this link and vote! We would love to see this happen right here in Chicago!
