What’s New at Urban Naturalist

It’s been a busy spring here at Urban Naturalist and we’d love to share what we’ve been up to with you!

While the outdoor portion of our retail garden center remains open, we’ve been renovating our indoor retail garden center and also installing edible landscapes around the community.

Johnston Street Food Forest

In February of 2014, Urban Naturalist created and installed a food forest landscape that is open to the public. Bill Goode of the Goode Law Firm hired Urban Naturalist to convert an empty lot from turf grass to a beautiful and functional space to be enjoyed by the community.

Cindy's Backyard Food Forest

Also in February of 2014, Urban Naturalist constructed a food forest in a private backyard for Cindy Brasseaux. Cindy requested her lawn be transformed into a diversely beautiful landscape that would produce food and also create a haven for wildlife.

Living Room Landscape

In April of 2014, Urban Naturalist began constructing a “living room” landscape which is another landscape that is open to the public to enjoy.  An array of botanical choices will serve as living walls.
