If you’ve been dreaming of an indoor [2] garden, but simply don’t have the space or the sunlight to manage growing inside, then check out this kitchen island that doubles as a small hydroponic garden. Made from walnut and steel, and secured with simple yet beautiful wood joinery, Peter Buley’s [3] new island is the perfect way to make room for some delicious decor. And if you happen to be in New York City [4] on October 2nd, be sure to stop by the GreenHomes’ DIY Green Block Party [5] where you’ll be able to see this piece and many others up close.


Peter Buley is a Brooklyn-based designer whose work focuses on reclaimed materials [7] and sustainable construction methods. If you’re in New York City on October 2nd, be sure to stop by GreenHomes’ DIY Green Block Party [8], where Peter will be showcasing some of his other projects, which will include prototypes of kitchen islands with integrated composting, and other eco-friendly waste management systems.
