The Design Trust for Public Space and Farming Concrete have released the Farming Concrete Data Collection Toolkit: the first public platform for gathering, tracking and understanding urban agriculture production and the benefits of community gardens, urban farms and school gardens. The result of a six-year initiative, Five Borough Farm, the Toolkit features a user-friendly manual with simple methods of generating and collecting data at each garden and farm, with accompanying instructional videos; Barn, an online portal for farmers and gardeners to input and track their production; and Mill, a public database providing access to numbers, reports for practitioners, researchers, policymakers, funders and anyone with interest in urban agriculture.

..

The project, lead by a core group of farmers and gardeners from New York City, includes twenty methods across five categories to measure gains in any farm or garden:

..

Food Production, measured by (i) crop and (ii) harvest counts;

Health Benefits, measured by (iii) changes in attitude, (iv) good moods, (v) healthy eating, and (vi) beauty of the garden;


Social Benefits, measured by participation by (vii) geography, (viii) task and (ix) project, (x) skills & knowledge in the garden and (xi) sharing with other gardens, and (xii) reach of programs;


Environmental Benefits, measured by landfill waste diversion by (xiii) weight or (xiv) volume, compost production by (xv) weight or (xvi) volume, and rainwater harvesting by (xvii) surface area or (xviii) volume;


Economic Benefits, measured by (xix) market sales and (xx) food donations.

..

There are now over 285 urban farms and community gardens in 43 cities nationwide and across the globe that contribute data to the Farming Concrete Data Collection Toolkit. So far 75,000 pounds of food have been harvested and 4,000 pounds of compost have been recorded.

The prolific growth that occurred during the spring and summer slows down as the nights become longer. Watering needs are less predictable, and your space is often crowded with plants you brought in from outside for the winter.

..

Dont give up on your plants, even if they start to look sad during their battle against Old Man Winter.

..

Follow these tips to keep your houseplants alive through the season.

5 Easy Houseplants Every Novice Can Handle

..



Houseplants, most of which are natives of tropical regions of the world, will flourish indoors given the right place and attention. Some are so amenable they will do well even if the place and attention are not exactly right. These are the good soldiers on the houseplant front, ones that add life and color to every room.

..

The plants that do especially well in the home tended to arise originally in places with light shade or filtered sunlight. These conditions can be replicated in a window that gets good light through the day. Some will even prosper in the interior of a room without direct sunlight.

..

But most will require watering at least once a week through the winter, when growth is slow, and more often as spring arrives and fresh stems and leaves begin to appear. These plants require less fertilizer in autumn and winter, while semi-dormant; liquid fertilizer applied at half-strength every couple of weeks should be fine. You can switch to full strength according to label directions once fresh growth starts.

..

Five kinds of houseplants are particularly well-suited to the novice or casual gardener who wants results but isnt ready to tackle more demanding ones.

There are many items that are easy to grow indoors. Why not extend summer's harvest inside your home all winter using window farms?

..

Things to consider

..

Location is a huge consideration for your indoor window farm. You need to see which windows of your home have adequate light. Windowsills are ideal but basements and garages will also work if you can add additional light and monitor the temperature. A good rule of (green) thumb - most vegetables and herbs that grow well indoors need a temperature between 65 and 85 degrees.

..

What should I grow?

..

Root vegetables are good to plant indoors but you need large containers to grow them. Carrots, beets, onions, garlic, and potatoes are popular indoors. The easiest item to grow are herb plants such as basil, cilantro, rosemary and green onions (scallions). You can also plant the key salad ingredients like small variety tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower. Strawberries and lemons also grow indoors but you need prolonged light and warmer temperatures to grow them ideally.

How to Style, and Care For, Indoor Plants

As landscape designers in New York City, we spend a lot of our time dealing with the extremes of weather outside. Frigid winters or hot and humid summers can be a constant challenge for gardens. Particularly at this time of year, with the weather cooling and attentions shifting to life inside, there is no better time to embrace an indoor plant.

..

Like most people in New York, we never seem to have enough time. Our lives are split between our Brooklyn studio, our loft in South Street Seaport and our weekender upstate, so the plants we have around us need to be able to survive some occasional neglect. Our studio in Brooklyn has become a living laboratory of interior plants, where we have been able to test the toughness of a number of species. Here are some of the lessons weve learned about bringing the outdoors in.

You love plants, but you dont like a lot of maintenance. Does this sound about right? Dont worry these plants are easy as can be. In fact, one of the biggest mistakes with many of them is overwatering! When buying houseplants, be sure to search by both common name (the first one on this list) and the botanical name (the second one) to make sure you get the right one. We also listed the light needs for each of these, which is very important when it comes to houseplants.

Question: I have an enormous schefflera plant that is perhaps 27 years old. I struggle with scale insects on it. It is too large and heavy to take outside and hope for the rain to help. I have used powder insecticides in the past, but that is only a temporary fix. For the past several years, I have been wiping off the leaves and stems with alcohol. This is very time consuming. I love my plant, so I am wondering if you might have a different suggestion.

..

Answer: Scale is a notorious pest of numerous houseplants, including schefflera, citrus, gardenias, ficus, spider plants and palms. Though this obnoxious little pest is difficult to control, it isn't impossible.

..

Houseplant scale appears as very small, immobile, oval-shaped bumps along the plant stems, on leaf undersides and/or in the leaf nodes. Scale is notoriously difficult to diagnose because the insects look like part of the plant. One clear sign of a scale infestation is the presence of a sticky, saplike substance on the floors and furniture around and under the plant. As the insects suck out plant juices, they produce a sticky excrement called honeydew that quickly collects on any surfaces where it falls.

..

There are more than 8,000 species of scale, but only a handful of them are considered to be houseplant pests. Most mature scales are covered by a hard shell, except for a few weeks a year when they're in their crawler stage. Females lay eggs under their shells, and upon hatching, these immature scale insects move around the plant to find a suitable place to attach and feed. Soon after they latch onto the plant tissue, they generate their own hard, protective shell. Most species will stay in a single spot for most of their lives, sucking out the plant juices and excreting honeydew.

..

Scale can easily hitch a ride into your house on newly purchased plants or on plants that spend the summer outdoors. If you notice scale on your houseplants, it's always better to try to control it early in the game. If you wait too long, the infestation can become quite sev

Clearing the Air with Houseplants

A suggested density of one plant per 100 square feet was found to be effective. Its important to keep your plants leaves clean and dust-free so they can work at peak efficiency. No fancy cleaners are needed, just wipe the leaves with a damp cloth occasionally.

..

Here are a few easy-to-grow plants that can remove benzene, trichloroethylene and formaldehyde from indoor air:

..

Variegated snake plant, also called mother-in-laws tongue, or Sansevieria trifasciata, is one of the easiest plants to grow. This somewhat succulent plant with its long vertical leaves tolerates neglect better than almost any other houseplant. If you occasionally forget to water it for a week or two, it wont mind too much.

..

Peace lily, or Spathiphyllum wallisii, when grown in a warm, somewhat humid room will reward you with shiny long green leaves and white flowers that resemble calla lily flowers. This attractive houseplant may look like a prima donna but its easy to grow and does its job cleaning your homes air.

..

English ivy, or Hedera helix, is a familiar and trouble-free pot plant that will do well when grown in a cool room and the soil is kept moist. Many selections are available with assorted leaf forms and colors. The variegated leaf forms require brighter light than the solid green forms.

..

Red-edged dracaena, or Dracaena marginata, is another plant that survives neglect in less-than-ideal growing conditions. When young, it looks like a conventional foliage plant with long slender leaves edged in red. Older plants develop a grayish trunk up to 10 feet tall crowned with leaves. If it gets too tall for your space, you can cut the top off and root it. Trim the trunk back to a more manageable size and it will grow new clusters of leaves.

Not All Leaves Are The Same

..

Maple leaves can get matted down and rot perennials with tender crowns. Ive had bee balm also be killed by too many wet leaves on it all winter. The roots of these plants are close the surface and can be impacted by the constant moisture.

..

If you want to wait until spring to clear the leaf matter, its fine on gardens where the perennials and bulbs are fully under the surface. The leaves will actually protect the plants somewhat as the frost won be able to penetrate as deeply.

..

In the spring, be sure to remove the leaves early to let the sunshine start warming the soil and also allow the spring rain to penetrate deeply.

..

Still Time To Plant

..

November is still a planting month. You can move perennials up until thanksgiving as they have likely gone dormant. I wouldnt move any evergreens this month. If you get a plant at a nursery and want to winter it over, just plant it in the pot and mulch it heavily. In the spring, remove the pot from the root ball and replant.

Driven by their shared love of nature, healthy, sustainable foods, and a desire to change the world, the co-founders of eco-startup Grove, based in Somerville, Massachusetts, engineered an intelligent gardening appliance that enables people to grow their own fresh, nutrient-rich vegetables, herbs ,and small fruits indoors year-round.

..

Composed of three layers contained in a cabinet the size of a bookshelf LED grow lights on top, gardening bed in the middle, and aquarium on the bottom the Grove Ecosystem utilizes the natural process of aquaponics, which harnesses the existing relationship between fish, plants, and beneficial microbes. The ammonia-rich fish waste is converted to nitrates, which simultaneously supplies plants with nutrients and fish with clean water. All the parts work together to grow a variety of produce such as kale, arugula, cilantro, thyme, sugar peas, tomatoes, and strawberries. The system also contains sensors for air and water temperature, humidity, and water level, so users can adapt to their fish and plants ideal environment, view progress, record growth, and diagnose problems through a mobile app on their phone.

..

Blanchet and Byron conceived of the idea for the Grove Ecosystem when they were roommates during their senior year at MIT studying mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering, respectively. What began as an indoor gardening experiment in our Sigma Chi fraternity room soon turned into a central gathering spot for friends. The early iterations of the ecosystem provided fresh food, ambiance, clean air and a great conversation-starter. We soon realized that we had stumbled on something really special, Blanchet says.

..

..

With limited know-how on building a business out of their idea, the partners turned to the Martin Trust Center for Entrepreneurship at MIT to gain the skills they needed to develop their venture. The Trust Center was instrumental in helping Jamie and I with Grove. They were the first people who saw our potential, investing time in us as founders, and providing the resources, connections and necessary education to turn our dreams into a reality, says Blanchet. To this day, it is through our connection to the MIT network and the Trust Center that weve been able to take our idea from concept to a viable startup.

Around 1840, in the area known today as Votanikos (which means botanical in Greek), Bavarian botanist Karl Nikolas Fraas founded modern Greece's first such gardens, a small section of which still survives thanks to the University of Athens.

.

snip

.


Its story begins in 1950, when Diomidis willed a part of his sizable fortune to the University of Athens for the creation of a foundation in his name, administered by the university ever since. Diomidis's dream came to fruition after a 1961 decision by the Ministry of Agriculture to grant the foundation a forested area, the entrance to which is today located at 403 Iera Odos before the busy Athens thoroughfare joins Athinon Avenue.

.

The grounds contain more than 500 species of flora. Bordering the park, one of Attica's earliest Aleppo pine (Pinus halepensis) and kermes oak (Quercus coccifera) forests stands majestically, defying time. The garden's vast expanse has been enriched with Turkish pine (Pinus brutus) and Mediterranean cypress (Cupressus sempervirens).

.

Of special interest to experts and amateur aficionados are the endemic chasmophytes that grow in the crags of the garden's limestone hills. Visitors will surely appreciate the sight of resilient bellflowers (Campanula saxatilis), sprouting among the sturdy rocks, Fritillaria lilies, wild cyclamen, winter lilies and numerous native orchids, adding their bold colors to the autumnal ocher. Kept in the Diomidis Botanical Garden's herbarium are over 19,000 dried plant samples, the majority of which were collected from nature reserves, while the foundation's genetic bank hosts gametes from more than 800 species.

Snag an easy charmer: Swett recommends a plant from the dracena family for a low-maintenance, high-fashion option. You can get a good variety, like a tiny version thats 4 inches to one that is 6 or 7 feet grown. Theyre the easiest plants to take care of. Theyre bright-light and low-light tolerant and good air purifiers.

.

snip

.

Put your plant on a diet: Swett recommends cutting back on the water and fertilizer during the winter months. You should really stop fertilizing mid-late fall to spring time, she said. And generally watering can be decreased in the winter because plants wont be actively growing. Be wary of heaters that can dry plants out faster, though. Misting your tropical plants is an additional way to help them through dry winter months.

A reader approached last week and sheepishly asked if I would recommend a plant she could grow in her bathroom. It is not the kind of question I normally get, but immediately, strawberry begonias (Safraga stoloniferau), spider plants (Chlorophytum comosum) and piggyback plants, (Tolmiea menziesii) came to mind.

.

All three of these houseplants should be common enough that you dont have to go to the Internet to recognize what I am writing about. You probably have at least one of these in the house or at the office right now. If you dont now, you probably did in the past (and, you definitely should in the future).

.

All of these plants have well-deserved reputations for doing well while growing in bathrooms. They are the plants used in magazine layouts of the latest sinks and tubs. I can tell you from personal experience that all three thrive on any humidity from a shower. Of course one frequently sees specimens of these plants in the windows of barber shops, dry-cleaning establishments and shopping mall fast food places, often neglected, underwatered and ignored. They do fine there as well.

.

The point is these plants are just easy to grow houseplants and they will obviously do well under a whole host of different conditions, not just those that exist in your bathroom. In fact, I am not sure why a bathroom is any more difficult a place to grow plants, something you can do in any room provided there is enough light.

A large body of research ties access to nature and green spaces to improvements in both mental and physical health, but evidence that indoor plants confer similar benefits is scanty, and any effects that may exist are probably weaker than those we find with outdoor forms of nature, said Frances E. Kuo, an associate professor of natural resources and environmental sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

.

.

That said, several small studies have found health benefits associated with indoor plants. A small 1998 Norwegian study reported that workers had fewer complaints of fatigue, cough, dry throat and itching when they had plants in the office, and experiments in England and the Netherlands found that employees in buildings with plants were more productive, had better concentration and greater work satisfaction than those in bare offices.

.

Two randomized controlled trials reported that surgical patients placed in rooms with plants reported less pain, anxiety, stress and fatigue than patients without plants. Over all, they had lower systolic blood pressure, were more satisfied about their rooms and felt more positively toward hospital workers.
