Sadly I was on a trip this past weekend and missed the " "Modern Outdoor Living," pop-up store and discussion this past weekend in Chinatown hosted by Shibui Designs.  The event was a show and tell of sustainable outdoor furniture and innovative urban gardening concepts.  One of the highlights noted by the LA Times: Greenades, by San Francisco landscape architect David Fletcher and Los Angeles designers Daniel Phillips and Kim Karlsrud. The design is a bubble gum machine repurposed as a seed dispensary for guerrilla gardeners with seed-bomb choices including one mix specifically devised for planting along the Los Angeles River.
