Case Study
New Children's Museum

When San Diego’s New Children’s Museum approached us about an edible garden exhibit, we wanted to design something totally unique and worthy of the museum’s reputation. Bicycle wheel trellises, a passion vine tunnel, and raised beds in the shape of “ART” pushed the boundaries of traditional garden structure. A dedicated digging bed for the museum’s little passersby offered endless fun, while the sensory garden benches surrounded by aromatic herbs were perfect for a family picnic.

Last year the garden showcased the museum’s California-themed “Eureka!” exhibit. Each bed highlighted top crops grown in California counties along Interstate 5 such as wheat, garlic, and celery. Set in downtown San Diego, the resulting garden was truly a fine example of urban gardening catering to our youngest friends!
