Solar-Powered Summer Events


The Garden Gnomad has been set up as a solar-powered garden photo booth at a few events this summer: Mount Pleasant Community Centre’s Earth Day Celebration (April 18), The Britannia Centre’s Stone Soup Festival (May 9), Family Fuse at the Vancouver Art Gallery (June 13) the MOPARRC Artist Tea Party at the Means of Production Garden (June 21).

At each of these events, I offered to combine photos of the participants with photos from gardens that I had visited since beginning this project in spring, and then printed them on the spot as postcards to take away… Garden Gnomad Postcard Album shows a few of those candid photos.

The events have given me a chance to talk about the various approaches to community agriculture that I have seen, as well as to play with this awkward, recycled, low impact ‘garden machine’.

Weather permitting, Garden Gnomad will be taking photos and recording conversations at the Means of Production Community Garden on the next three Wednesdays from 10am-12pm (July 8, 15, 22). Please stop by!
