We are happy to announce that the BioCity installation has completed its second round of installation. The wood structure is complete and we’re excited to begin to populate the installation with plants. The planting types and schedule has been determined with the help of Buchanan’s Native Plants and we are so grateful for their support. Stay tuned for more images of the installation as we tune it to the Houston ecosystem.
