Starting in the Latin Quarter of Aarhus, Adopt-A-Box hopes to both decorate and provide food (for thought) for the people that use the area.
The boxes measure 75cm long and 25 cm wide so fit comfortably on the pavement or steps.
There are three different boxes:
Potato and marigold
Carrot, onion, garlic and sweet pea
Salad, herbs and nasturtiums
The idea is that local businesses, cafés, residents etc adopt a box and give it a place to live on their doorstep, water the plants through the summer months and finally, reap the rewards at a community harvest in the autumn. In return, the boxes will beautify the streets of the Latin Quarter and hopefully, give a sweet little something for the birds and the bees.
There is nothing easier than growing your own food, and nothing more delicious than doing so!
Let's get cracking and plant some veggies!
