Urban Planet: Urban Plant Tags

Urban Planet is a daily roundup of  blogs from around the world dealing specifically with urban environments. We’ll be on the lookout for websites outside the country that approach themes related to urban experiences and issues.

What are your favourite pieces of urban infrastructure and how do you care for them? The Carmichael Collective, a creative company based in Minneapolis, MN, has borrowed from gardening – installing plant tags with care instructions and information about everything from benches to stop signs to mailboxes.   “Everything you see here is just creativity for creativity’s sake,” they write. “If you like it, share it.”
