Kiosk Garden Project Update #2

Jun/07-12 by Maggie

The Kiosk Garden Project is inspired by last summer’s intern Michael Leung of HK Honey & 2 Steps Ahead! Michael is a beekeeper and designer in Hong Kong who creates amazing and beautiful projects on sustainability and urban agriculture.

One of Michael’s rooftop gardens in Hong Kong.

Last summer, Michael came to Kiosk to help create a rooftop garden! Together we built a planter:

This summer we’re excited to start our rooftop garden. We’ll be building more planters out of found wood, and hopefully we’ll create a nice oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets!

ANNOUNCING THE KIOSK GARDEN PROJECT!

May/30-12 by Maggie

Maggie Prendergast & Anny Oberlink of Power Plant Press are collaborating with Kiosk this summer to start a roof garden! We are planting bee-friendly flowers and other fun herbs and edibles. We are experimenting with building the flower boxes out of pallets found on the streets of SoHo.

This zine, “Gardens not Lawns,” was created by Maggie to encourage home gardening (LINK HERE). It shows the few steps it takes to get the ball rolling on self-sufficiency.

Purchase the zine at the store (coming soon to the online shop too) for $5. All proceeds go to the project!

More soon on THE KIOSK GARDENING PROJECT!

wall painting at Mattanchery Palace in kochi

I am going through all my images from this years India trip in preparation for the next collection and found this image inspiring. The palace is more famous for the murals of the Ramayana but what a beautiful creative burst. – A

If these losers can do it, why can’t you?

May/10-12 by Alisa

 

If these jerks can win seats in the state Senate why can’t you? Read their story here in the NYT: After a Rebellion That Shook Albany, Three Falls From Grace

They aren’t retired celebrities and they are not particularly attractive, how did they make it in there? I mean really, what makes them different from you and why are we letting them on OUR payroll funded by OUR taxes.

I’d say it’s time to think about going into politics rather than hanging on the outside as a sour grape protesting. Not that protesting is bad but getting on the inside is where it is at. Look towards Iceland for a tip. Give it a thought. We need smart people in government, why are our political offices filled with the dregs? You know, political office can be as sexy and exotic as a graphic design job and I assume a bunch of clothing purchases can be written off as a work expense…think about it.

an alternative in case you are wondering

Apr/25-12 by Alisa

In case you are wondering what I will be doing with myself if I ever get bored and broke, it’s Miss. Travel. A totally legit way (empowering young ladies I am certain!) to spend ones free time while traveling the world. But wait, am I young enough? Oh no! and if Marco can’t make a trip where do I find Mr. Travel? Are you out there? If you have any suggestions please leave a comment.- A.

ok, that is done, so passé

Apr/17-12 by Alisa

Space, is it the final frontier? If so then we may have a problem Houston…The Space Shuttle took it’s final flight today strait into the Smithsonian archives. You have to love NASA’s humor in flying it around DC. Fun and poignant. LOOK UP! There goes our space program! A bunch of good jokes must have some out of that one.

Spaß haben!

Mar/01-12 by Maggie

 

The other day we broke out the German toys, new here at kiosk. They are meant for children but we were up to the challenge (I have accepted that I will never be as smart as a German child). We built all three systems: pulley, rope-runner, and a bridge. I need to find a place in my house for a pulley! They’re so nifty. Come to think of it, they’d be perfect for a loft bed! Bushwick residents: we are now taking orders!
