workshop: 30 April - 01 May 2005; The Scout Hut, Bristol, UK
'Nothing can surprise us'/ 'Ništa nas ne može iznenaditi (NCSU/NNNI) festival has provided a chance for FoAM's groWorld gardeners to plant some seeds in various urban sites in and around Bristol. These gardens will become a new node in the groWorld 'trans-local edge-habitat', a distributed network of public gardens (or; groWorld pocket-ecologies), planted in abandoned or otherwise 'de-activated' sites in urban and sub-urban environments around the globe. The workshop included an introduction to seedball making, site-spotting through psychogeographic drifting, seedball spreading and mapping the network of pocket-ecologies for on-site and on-line monitoring of their growth. The activities were followed by exploring the power of the seeds through cooking+consuming a seedy dinner. Local ecologists, children, artists, scientists, gardening amateurs and anyone else interested in being able to breathe in the coming decades, as well as preserving local and trans-local biodiversity were welcome to attend.
