City slickers who long to reconnect with their agrarian roots despite living in cramped urban digs can now enjoy a movable feast of home-grown vegetables, fruits and herbs. Food Map Design of Southern California offers an eco-friendly planter made of non-toxic, UV-resistant, post-consumer recycled HDPE plastic (think: milk jugs) that features drainage holes, a powder-coated steel frame and rubber wheels for rolling edibles into sun or shade as needed.
The Food Map Container is ideal for cultivating tomatoes, carrots, potatoes and salad greens but also great for flowers and other ornamentals. At 15 inches wide, 33 inches long and 14 inches deep, the tub is "big enough to put a noticeable amount of fresh produce in your diet," says company co-founder and designer Jon Wilson. Two heights are available: 23 inches tall and 30 inches tall. Watch for a lighter-weight and less-expensive children's container. foodmapdesign.com
