This instructable is for an idea that I saw on a longboarding forum. The idea is that you can grow grass on the deck of a skateboard providing a soft surface that consumes CO2 and puts out fresh, clean Oxygen! Thats right, it is the ultimate hipster ecofreak treehugger accessory!

To start out, you need a skateboard to be your ginneapig. It can be a normal skateboard, or a longboard. The board I am using started life as a normal skateboard, but I hacked it up and turned it into a schlong board.

Step 1: Building the "Planter"

In order to contain the dirt on top of the deck, we need a short wall around the edge of the deck to make a bowl. I chose to make it out of strips of cardboard because it is soft to your feet, and widely available as a post consumer material. Make strips about a quarter of an inch thicker than the width of the deck and attach it to the sides of the board. This can be done with a staple gun.


oh.. lol.. also this will ultimately rot the board.
How do you get the board to stay turned for the picture?
What is the point of this? A rideable planter?
