Park it Anywhere
CBRE and ValleyCrest Landscape maintenance teamed up on Friday to build a temporary mini-garden on the corner of Walton and Michigan. CBRE's Adam Devlin-Brown, Sarah Russell, and Colleen Clark showed off how such gardens can conserve water and help the environment when created in association with a building.
Sarah also demonstrated proper bags technique in the garden, which the team started constructing at 7am—and took down at 3pm. The building Sarah manages at 190 S. LaSalle was recently LEED-certified; ValleyCrest is perhaps best known in Chicago for creating the city's biggest green roof: Millennium Park.
