Bamboo Vertical Gardens

In the community of Ha Tanwa, Chiang Mai, we worked with residents to design and build a vertical bamboo gardening system to produce herbs and vegetables for locals.

Residents asked us to help them build low-cost gardens which could be productive in the small amount of available space in the high density community.

We adapted a three level vertical bamboo garden design, making use of readily available and affordable materials to produce a space- and water-efficient gardening system. After the pilot system was constructed and enjoyed by several households, they were replicated and sold by a local bamboo builder. The planting took place in collaboration with the Green Rangers, a local urban organic farming initiative.
