Victory Garden is a series of modular, sculptural planters interspersed throughout the Miami Design District. Victory Garden is an edible garden of native plants in planters made from repurposed stainless steel drums. The sculptures will feature solar powered USB outlets, creating clean, passive energy charging stations for phones. A series of programmed events by local urban farmers will educate the public on local native plants — including how to find and consume them. The project gives back to the local community by educating, feeding, powering and inspiring.
