It’s spring and it seems that everyone has caught the gardening bug. We certainly have — check out our own guide to urban gardening here [2]. We support the creation of green space everywhere, big [3] or small. We also can’t help but be enamored with the cute garden knick-knacks for intimate garden settings. This week we’ve picked some links that remind us that it is time to get our green thumbs on!

MIT [4] will be building their first community garden [5].

Notcot [6] features exquisite hanging garden planters [7], perfect for a number of different plants.

Re-nest [8]  proves to us that carrying fresh-cut flowers [9] can be done without wasting extra resources.

Treehugger [10] explains how to build a greenhouse made out of plastic bottles [11].

Re-nest [8] shows us how to make cheerful planter cozies [12] out of mismatched socks.
