-"​Gardens encourage and accommodate a broad range of activities; in substance these have changed little through the centuries and are recorded in garden paintings from late medieval French manuscripts to Fragonard and Pater. Gardens are territories of play - both play as alternative to work or business and play as theater, make-believe,​ the whole gamut of role playing that is human life. Though this last is not obviously confined to gardens, it flourished there because gardens are special sites of artifice pretending to be nature; though if you were convinced a garden was wholly natural, you were tempted to think you could dispense with role playing." ​(John Dixon Hunt, //Gardens and the Picturesque,//​ p. 263)+"​Gardens encourage and accommodate a broad range of activities; in substance these have changed little through the centuries and are recorded in garden paintings from late medieval French manuscripts to Fragonard and Pater.

It brings together three "​forces"​ capable of transforming the world on human and ecological scale: design, permaculture and technology. In its current installment,​ groWorld explores interactions between plants and humans from multiple perspectives. It works towards minimising borders and maximising edges between the human-made and vegetal by entangling culture and cultivation {sym}, building and growing {bio} and nature and technology {sys}.

-  * [[:​luminous_green]] +Luminous Green is a workshop about the world. About the world that supports life today and about the possible worlds that can support more luminous life in the future. It is a gathering of people who can imagine, cultivate and inhabit such a world. People who consider themselves creative thinkers, doers and makers. Who deploy their creativity and imagination to shape a brighter future, disentangling themselves and their practices from the unsustainable and unnatural. '​Luminous Green' will seek out lush worlds and find fertile ways of growing them.
