Curt Ellis (pictured) and Ian Cheney were thinking outside the garden box when they created their Truck Farm project. The two friends have driven their Truck Farm from neighborhood to neighborhood, giving urban kids a chance to get their hands dirty, and see how food looks on the (moving) ground.
They produced a film on the project in 2011, Truck Farm, and they’ve enlisted such singer/songwriters as Jack Johnson and Charlie Sutton to attract the crowds.
Their project proves that with a little imagination, container gardening can take unusual forms. You don’t need a yard to use your hori hori knife, even a truck farm will do. To see the movie and other mobile garden ideas visit Truck Farm.
