Want to grow local food? Bring Nature back to the city? You need a Growroom! Space 10, supported by IKEA have released Open Source plans for this fantastic large wooden sphere with walls made of planters Рin essence it creates an outdoor room, with walls made of plants.

Full instructions on how to make it are on the Medium blog here. We’ve run the files through our system and reckon we could make one for ¬£2,000. We’d love to build one but don’t have the space to use it.. so if anyone wants to commission us to make one we’d be very happy. Contact us at
