Workshop @ No-Space, June 5, 1-3 pm
With DoTank Brooklyn
Please join us at The Change You Want To See Gallery this Saturday for a hands-on urban agriculture workshop with hosts DoTank Brooklyn. From worms to seed bombs to vertical, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible window farms, you’ll gain new tools to help you engage in and enhance your urban environment.
Bring curiosity, cameras, and something to write on.
ABOUT DOTANK BROOKLYN
DoTank is a public vessel for interdisciplinary exploration, engagement and enhancement of our urban environment through means outside of the formal urban planning process. We make rapid and meaningful change by exploring and testing in our laboratory: Brooklyn, NY. By catalyzing local intellectual capital, we carry out interventions meant to improve the built environment. We connect, capture, build, design, and produce, and above all else, we Do.
Windowfarms are vertical, hydroponic, modular, low-energy, high-yield edible window gardens built using low-impact or recycled local materials. They serve to empower city folks to grow food inside, year-round, and give ordinary people a way to contribute innovations toward more sustainable cities.
ABOUT SEED BOMBING
Seed bombing is where gardeners throw a “green grenade” into an empty lot filling in all those empty spots and roadside tracts of land with flowers and/or food. With this unauthorized act of participation guerrilla gardeners do the work that our cities should be paying to have done.
Worms!!!! And indoor composting.
