I'm spending spring break doing all of the crafts and projects that I've been pining over since the start of medical school. At the very top of the list was a succulent garden to freshen up the apartment and bring in the spring! I found Etera garden tiles at Lowe's which made the project simple and inexpensive.
As an added bonus - I learned a lot more about the Green Roof initiative. Green roof development is the creation of contained green spaces integrated with human-made structures. One of the focal points of the initiative is to improve urban health through benefits such as: enhanced air quality, moderated urban heat, reduced pollution, improved aesthetics, and a whole host of other things.
One garden tile was more than enough...
and now we have succulents everywhere!
The variety is colorful, quick growing, and easy to maintain (or so it says).
Here's to hoping I can keep them alive!
