Despite large, lush open spaces like Central Park, New York City is the stereotypical concrete jungle – a dense synthesis of buildings, roadways, machines and human flesh that leaves little in the way of nature. Small urban gardens tucked on the top of ten-story apartment buildings do little to change that. The Plant-In City project aims to provide a more substantial garden space in New York City, with a technologically advanced terrarium concept. It's like gardening for geeks.
