An Excerpt:

“They reduce stress, help us think more clearly, and look supercool. In other words: a real no-brainer. Learn more in our interview with Habitat Horticulture founder David Brenner, who has turned everything from short office walls to a twenty-foot high column in the Tesla factory into vertical gardens.”

Tell us a bit about your history as a company—what inspired you to start Habitat Horticulture?.

I understood the therapeutic benefits of plants at an early age which led me to believe in the importance of bringing greenery into urban areas that are often lacking in plants. Because of the spatial constraints in these places, the best way to do that was vertically.

My formal education is in horticulture, landscape design, and psychology. I became inspired by how plants grow on cliffs and rock-faces in nature while apprenticing at the tropical nursery at the Royal Botanic Gardens in London (Kew Gardens). I was working with orchids, bromeliads, and aroids which have adapted themselves to grow on vertical surfaces. Meanwhile, I was studying horticulture and environmental psychology at Cal Poly University.

While at Kew I traveled around Europe and saw vertical gardens for the first time. After returning from Kew, I began to experiment with different ways of growing plants vertically in the greenhouse of the botany department at Cal Poly and later began developing a system to grow plants vertically.
