My Favorite Flower Box! Contest

Pin it button big

We Still Want You. Do you have a green thumb?
Do you struggle to scrape out a greenspace 10 stories up?
Do you secretly covet your neighbor's roof garden?

We are inviting readers to submit photographs of their favorite SMALL private urban green achievements along with tips and resources to aid and encourage more GREEN.

The big difference with this contest is that what you submit doesn't need to be YOUR work as we will have two categories - one for gardeners and one for those who discover the work of others.
