Date: June 1 – September 30, 2009
Sharecropper invites you to participate in this public art project and micro farming installation by Leah Gauthier for one growing season in New York City: Summer 2009. Leah will be using organic growing methods to plant rare and endangered heirloom vegetables and herbs, and to cultivate wild edibles on parcels of donated land or growing spaces located in each of the five boroughs. A portion of the harvest will be shared with local soup kitchens, and a series of interactive cooking performances around the city are being planned.
Join Leah in community building through growing and cooking food, and help her re-imagine land use and ways of re-incorporating agrarian sensibilities and simplicity into modern life. Volunteers will be needed for June plantings. Get your hands dirty! Meet other gardening enthusiasts!
