Lisa DePiano

“When dealing with the heat coming off of New York City streets we love knowing our plants can rely on irrigation from Dripping Springs Ollas. They are a simple, elegant and ancient way of successfully keeping our plantings watered.”

Meet Lisa DePiano, a certified permaculture designer/teacher, and writer with over 15 years of experience. She has accomplished many things, which you can find at her website,, to include the building of Parkways in Manhattan, Lisa called us a while back and asked about our ollas and how they worked. She felt they would be the perfect solution to the standing Parkway problem, which is watering. We have since partnered with her, and as you can see, and the plants are healthy, and thriving. There are one to two Dripping Springs Ollas in each of the wooden compartments that hold plants. The ollas are filled periodically, and flora and friends have developed a lovely relationship! Thank you, Lisa, and her team, for creating living, thriving oases to be enjoyed by many in New York City. May other cities reach out to you. If your city or town is in need of a Moblie Parklet like this, contact Lisa at She and her team can work magic! Be sure to let others know. #ILoveParkwaysNYC
