A modular and mobile vegetation system consisting of standardised bags filled with soil and seeds of different varieties that are suited to specific to climates and locations. The bags are manually placed together to form a carpet (each bag weighs 20kg, and 2.8 bags cover 1 m2 of ground) and opened up to let rain water and light in—and voilà, there you have your Pocket Habitat. Others just like it are already greening up several locations in the UK.

This and more inspiring projects can be found in the print copy of A smart guide to Utopia or the ebook version.
