Local Garden Project Re-uses old shipping container as Floral Design Space

In Rochester New York a new floral design space was recently unveiled in a local neighborhood for a project called Greentopia by Green Visions. The space was built from a repurposed shipping container and was designed as a way to help the community in their local garden.

There is a storage section for garden tools, a small worskshop where participants can put together the bouquets and a cold storage room to keep the flowers in pristine condition.

Re-building and repurposing is what Green Visions is all about. It is in its sixth year of operations as a youth-centered project designed to sustain the Josana Neighborhood by installing and cultivating flower gardens. It employs about 15 students each summer. The project is designed to restore once- vacant and decaying lots and re-purpose them. So its fitting that they re-used a shipping container as a part of their project.
