Fluidity Dish Wrack Planter – Green Kitchen


How cool is this?  While doing your dishes you can be using the water runoff to grow plants.  That mess that you have going in your kitchen could be more aesthetically pleasing throughout the process.  This Fluidity Dish Rack Planter was created by DesignLibero, a company based in Milan, Italy.


This product would be great for a small kitchen, as it was designed with small European kitchens in mind.  You can grow herbs right on the counter to use in your cooking!  The water that runs off of the plates gets filtered through coconut fiber and clay pellets, to ensure clean water for the plant.

This weekend at the Desert Botanical Garden you will find more then just a few prickly pears.  The garden will be filled with thousands of hand-lit luminaria bags, for its annual Las Noches de las Luminarias every weekend until the end of December. Bring your family and friends to enjoy the beauty of the desert, and be inspired by the lights that fill its night sky. Come after 5pm to see the bag lit walkways and enjoy a southwestern style meal.

STEAM Training

After giving a talk on how to integrate STEAM into curriculum at the APGA Conference HERE and then assisting the education team at the Desert Botanical Garden to create a STEAM curriculum I created a training for the DBG’s docents and volunteers in how to put the STEAM Curriculum into practice for students on tours and in classes at the garden.


At Laboratory5 Inc. We bring together all elements of STEAM and tie them up into a package to promote the work each individual is doing in their fields to celebrate this work. We produce experiences so that those unfamiliar with the glorious, quirky, nerdy, geeky qualities of all areas of STEAM can be explored as an adventure to explain these fields. Talk with us about producing your STEAM experience or advising on your STEAM curriculum.
