Vertical Gardens DIY Workshop
April 14, 5:30 pm
Flora Grubb Gardens, 1634 Jerrold Avenue, San Francisco

$15 AIA SF Members and Flora Grubb Landscape and Design Professionals
$25 Nonmembers

Register at http://verticalgardensDIY.eventbrite.com

Join us for a workshop at Flora Grubb Gardens on how to create interior and exterior vertical gardens utilizing the Woolly Pockets systems. By inserting living elements into unexpected and constrained spaces, vertical gardens mingle the realms of both landscape and architecture and open new possibilities for design. Flora Grubb Gardens’ Jim Kumiega and Flora Grubb will discuss their use of the system for display gardens and commissioned projects. They will also offer instruction on installation in varied contexts. The system’s ease of use brings the option of vertical gardening to smaller-scale projects and interior spaces. Predictable costs and simple installation can keep vertical gardens within strained budgets. The breathable, modular, neutral-color, capacious pockets come optimized for interior cultivation or outdoor growing. For indoors, a sealed version prevents water leakage.The draining version allows rainwater passage on outdoor installations.

Woolly Pockets is a sponsor of AIA San Francisco and the Center for Architecture + Design Gallery’s Vertical Gardens exhibition, currently on view through May 14th at 130 Sutter Street, Suite 600, San Francisco.

The ClimateWorks Foundation’s office is the highest-scoring LEED for Commercial Interiors project in California. With a score of 47, there are just two higher scoring LEED for Commercial Interiors projects in the world.

The 15,000 square foot tenant improvement space is in the historic Russ Building. All HVAC equipment was removed; the only supplemental cooling is in the server room – cooling is provided via the building’s operable windows, ceiling fans, and private office clerestories. The office has abundant daylighting through use of full-height glazing.

Come tour the project and learn why this LEED project is so unique!
