Ken Rinaldo, artist and professor at Ohio State University‘s Knowlton School of Architecture, recently brought his innovative “Cascading Garden” research project to Russia. The living installation uses vermiponics (live worms and their waste) to fertilize vegetables, and features custom vertical grow bags that Rinaldo developed for use both indoors and outdoors and in wet and dry environments. Each bag can be planted with a variety of plants, such as kale, lettuce, cabbage and other local vegetables for easy to harvest edibles just about anywhere.
