Led by resident Thomas Pausz, this workshop will explore the biological and geological qualities of the environment at the award-winning Culpeper Community Gardens.
Growing plants and crops depends on healthy soil, water and air, all elements which we have to care for. During the workshop, participants will explore soil and air composition, moisture and temperature as a part of the landscape. We will make these elements visual by imagining and making accessible tools to understand and map our environment.
The participants will collectively realise some maps of the ‘invisible’ garden using bio-materials found on site.
At 14:00 there will be an open discussion over lunch where Thomas Pausz will invite Culpeper volunteers and guests artists from Delfina Foundation and Evening Class Collective to discuss how developing creative tools to extend gardener’s skills can empower growing communities.
Suitable for ages 16+
This event is made possible with the generous support of Cockayne – The London Community Foundation, Arts Council England, Icelandic Arts Fund, Icelandic Academy of The Arts and Hybrid Platform Berlin.
