The non profit’s goal is a straightforward one: offer high-yield window planters made from low-impact materials.
After tinkering with the prototype for a year, founder Britta Riley and her team are now selling kits ($40 and up) that contain everything you need to hang used plastic bottles on your windows and get growing.
If you order a kit now, you should reap your first harvest by fall, about the time the bounty at the farmers’ market begins to wane. And for those with a black thumb, Riley will be holding court in Manhattan to encourage newbies with a schedule of window-farmer meet-ups, harvest-planning workshops and artist talks through August 13.
