Whether you’re a rooftop farmer, fire escape gardener or someone who simply wants to infuse your urban life with greenery, this temporary shop has everything you’ll need to get a jump start. Created by the green thumbs behind local farms Brooklyn Grange and Brooklyn Homesteader, as well as DIY duo Domestic Construction (domestic-construction.com), the industrial space features concrete floors, salvaged-wood shelving, rope detailing and vintage-fabric accents. Those looking to try their hand at homesteading will find potting mix (five gallons for $3), Evans Cedar beehives ($150–$200), Felco pruners ($32–$66) and Comstock, Ferré & Co. heirloom-seed packets ($2). There’s plenty for those who don’t want to get their hands dirty too, including Halona stained-glass terrariums ($80–$200) and J. Topolski necklaces and rings made with real honeybees set in resin ($30–$45). Register online for Sunday-morning classes (10am, $25–$50), which cover mushroom growing, chicken raising and beekeeping.
