It’s unlikely that many would think of planting a vegetable garden on the steps at the entrance to a museum, but it is a reality. This is the EarthBox garden at the entrance to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It is adjacent to the Smart Home that also has an EarthBox Garden.

Portability of these planters makes outreach possible. If this was a PONG, this family could not only take some vegetables home, they could take an EarthBox garden as well. Obviously some administrative details would have to be worked out, but if could be done. It’s a matter of policy rather than technology.

The potential of PONGs to help eradicate center city food deserts is enormous.
