Gardening for Gumbies - the Roll-Out Veg Mat | inhabitat.com

"Chris Chapman is an early twenties British designer who balked at the idea of studying design to make ‘pretty things for wealthy, privileged consumers.’ So he changed tack and learned design-for-sustainability instead. He now has a quiver of cool green projects ready to fling at prospective clients or employers. 
"The one that most captured our attention was his Roll-Out Veg Mat. Each season householders buy a new roll of corrugated cardboard impregnated with vegetable seeds. Simply roll out the cardboard and cover with soil. Presto! Near instant veggie garden.
"Chris’ idea shows that he understands that some of the hurdles to going green have nothing to politics. Oftentimes they come down to simply not having the available hours in the day to make good things happen."
