  • Our Story

    Whilst sitting on my balcony I realised the potential of all underused and non used balconies for greening, living and creating a little haven for wildlife by looking at my neighbours – most of them are empty, used as storage or rarely used for planting.

    This is when I started thinking about greening these outdoor rooms and applying a similar philosophy as a ready made meal: all ingredients get delivered to your door – why not do the same for your balcony?

    I am now in the process of establishing and creating the B.Box: ready made boxes – ready to order to transform your balcony, small or big, into a green oasis to enjoy, to look after, to harvest and to see it change throughout the seasons.

    The B.Box works in a few simple ways:

    Greening – improves our overall well being, atunes us with the seasonal changes and provides habitat for wildlife

    Growing – provides flowers for your flat and your own herbs, fruit & veg to add to your plate

    Living – creates an extra room bringing the inside out; lights, seats and cushions can make this a special place throughout the year

    This way our balconies could become:

    A place for bees
    A place for me
    A place to be

    Hopefully the idea will catch on and some of our facades and balconies will look greener, more colourful and loved than they do at the moment.
