Carly’s Coop

  • June 21, 2012

     

    Meet Carly Gillespie, Tour de Coop organizer and city-coop owner. Carly’s coop is unique for a couple of reasons: 1) there’s vintage wallpaper covering the walls; 2) it’s sitting smack-dab in the middle of a community garden. She waited 3 years before she was able to get her own plot, and when she did, she knew precisely what to do with it. She consulted with fellow community gardeners [all of whom were on board with the idea] and got to work. Take a peek for yourself — her creation includes wallpaper, a rooftop garden, and an adorably-painted exterior. Inside, you’ll find 5 well-housed [and, no doubt, spoiled] ladies; Violet, Marigold, Goldie, Spot One, and Spot Two.

    Check out Wasatch Community Gardens — an incredible organization that makes gardening/urban farming accessible to everyone, regardless of where you live. They have 8 total community gardens throughout the city, as well as training and education in a myriad of locations.
