Commuter Gardens?

mobilg There was a Holiday Train complete with Santa and reindeer in the winter, so why not a Garden Train in the summer?

The CTA has given the Mobile Garden Project a ticket to ride!  The project's basic concept is to build a garden on a flatcar train and to let it travel with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) as part of their regular transit service.

The Mobile Garden has even received the endorsement of Robert Kelly, President of The Amalgamated Transit Union Local 308 (a public transit union representing over 3500 transit workers of the Chicago Transit Authority) -- woot!
