In conjunction with the exhibition Combined Overflow on view now at Proteus Gowanus, Greenlab Studio is hosting a build-it-yourself workshop at the Gowanus Canal Conservancy Salt Lot on how to construct a square foot stormwater garden module. Come out and learn how to build these gardens and return home with a module of your own!
square foot gardens

As featured in the April 2014 issue of Dwell Magazine, these stormwater garden modules can be installed on any outdoor vertical surface such as a fence, a brick wall, or even a fire escape. In addition to providing valuable green space in any urban environment, they help capture rainwater before it enters our frequently overburdened stormwater system.

$50 registration fee, $40 for GCC members. All tools and materials are provided.

The Salt Lot is at the Dept of Sanitation lot at the end of Second Avenue, at the corner of Fifth St, where it dead ends into the canal.
