The Run Down

As we spend more time in our homes, the humble houseplant is something that doesn't go unnoticed. A little greenery can brighten up a room, it can purify the air, and it's been scientifically proven to reduce stress. With all that in mind, this guide has us taking a stroll down 18th Street in Pilsen. We're going to visit a few spots to help us turn our living rooms into a greenhouse. The day starts at a plant studio, and then finishes with a picnic and games in a community garden flanked by a massive street art mural.
