Submit Your Innovation: First Annual Edible Planter Box Competition

Calling all innovators—ASLA is partnering with the Water Collaborative of Greater New Orleans to promote the first annual Edible Planter Box Competition.

In a city suffering from both food deserts and urban flooding, The Water Collaborative in partnership with ANOVA and Green Theory want to support urban resilience using innovative design. The idea is simple: Encourage design and innovation by creating a fun and easy-to-install planter box that can house fresh produce.

Teams or individual landscape architects, architects, engineers, and/or design professionals to submit their own original edible planter box designs in CAD format. The winning design will be manufactured by Green Theory and distributed by ANOVA to low-income communities in the Greater New Orleans area.

The deadline to register is March 8. To learn more about the challenge, informational workshops, or how you can participate, visit the Edible Planter Box Challenge Website.
