Finders Keepers!

Click on this link to drop a pin and contribute to our site with the general geographic location of the cup garden’s new home. Look at the “example” on the map to label your pin and add information.

What’s in my cup?!? Your garden-in-a-cup is currently planted with organic wheatgrass. Follow these instructions to take care of your plant:

  • Place your garden-in-a-cup in indirect sunlight, near a window.
  • Water the young shoots twice a day to keep them nice and moist. But ensure that the water is just enough to keep the soil damp to the roots. Avoid over-watering.
  • Begin to harvest the wheatgrass when the wheatgrass “splits” and is about six inches high.
  • Cut with scissors above the root.
  • Add the harvested wheatgrass to your smoothie or salad, or juice–and start the process again! (2-3 crops max.)

  1. Hi Lori,

    Which class? At UC Denver? Are you in the Boston area? Hope to hear from you and thank you for your interest in Garden-in-a-Cup.

  2. Hi,
    I found out about this in my class because someone did a presentation on it. I think it’s a great idea and would love to help. Let me know what I can do.

  3. Hi Rob,

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments! We are trying to stay up to speed with database entries so please bear with us! Your only task (if you don’t mind) is to drop a red pin with your cup garden’s new home… or office… or wherever it ended up after you found it by JP Lick’s. Thanks again for your interest in Garden-in-a-Cup, and please check back soon as we update our site and cast our net over Boston!

  4. Hi Nicole,

    Thank you so much for your feedback! I have fixed the map application so you should be able to drop a pin now – sorry that wasn’t working correctly before! If you click on ‘Add,’ you can drop a red pin for the location of the cup garden’s new home. Great to hear from you and stay tuned for more updates and events!

  5. Awesome idea!

    I found 56WG on the statue of the old couple in front of JP Lick’s in Davis Square. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to update your database, though.

    Kind of confused, since there’s no entry for mine, and I would have figured that “Date Released” would be when it was first put there, not when I found it. Not sure how I would know when the date released would be other than to infer from the other entries.

    So maybe a few kinks to work out, but I love the concept and it was fun to find it there!

  6. Found a happy little plant in the Porter Square parking lot. I don’t see this one marked on you database but the number is 36WG. Not only did finding it bring me tons of happiness but when I got it home, my cat was thrilled to have some wheatgrass to snack on! Thanks for spreading the joy! I’d happily post a picture of the garden’s new home and place a red pin on the map but I’m not sure how to do either…..
    This is a great project, I look forward to hearing more about it 😀
