The B.O.B. and LiveWall Bring Vertical Gardening Back to Grand Rapids Urban Center


For a second consecutive year The B.O.B. in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan will be serving their patrons the freshest possible produce by growing vegetables on-site in a LiveWall vertical garden.  Last summer, The B.O.B. transformed the living art installation ‘Back to Eden‘ into an urban vertical garden.  This garden featured a variety of vegetables, herbs, and peppers that were used to create unique dining options for visitors.

After the wall was used again for the ArtPrize entry, ‘Breathe,’ the site needed to be cleared for new construction, but the B.O.B.’s chefs were so impressed with the success of the vertical garden that they decided to keep a portion of the wall permanently.  The living wall’s new location on the sky deck next to Bobarino’s features a new mix of produce including leafy greens used in various dishes.

Keep up on the latest produce in season and living wall entrees by following Bobarino’s on Instagram. We have shared some of our favorite posts below:
