Design Nerds Jam 5.6 Grow

The Grow Design Jam 5.6 brought the Design Nerds and the Grow project togeth­er for some cre­ative, col­lec­tive brain­storm­ing around grow­ing food, col­lect­ing water and com­post­ing at the Bulk­head Lab. Ocean and Ali­cia and I intro­duced the Jam with some infor­ma­tion about the Design Nerds, Grow and a look at some inno­v­a­tive art, design, and archi­tec­ture projects that use liv­ing mate­ri­als.


Upcoming Third Grow Workshop

Join artist Hol­ly Schmidt, Van­cou­ver Design Nerds, Ocean Dionne and Ali­cia Med­i­na Ladda­ga and a team of mas­ter gar­den­ers for a work­shop explor­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties for grow­ing food in the urban envi­ron­ment. Through obser­va­tion, dis­cus­sion and hands-on pro­to­type build­ing you will cre­ate and share new ways to grow food in the city. Small pock­et gar­dens will be plant­ed at Creek­side and then sus­pend­ed on chain link fences near the Grow project site. Take a minia­ture gar­den of your own to add some green to your neigh­bour­hood.


Making and Gardening at First Grow Workshop

The first Grow work­shop at Creek­side Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre, was co-facilitated by Mas­ter Gar­den­ers (Chris­tine and Joanne) and Van­cou­ver Design Nerds (Ali­cia and Ocean). We kicked off the work­shop by look­ing at some inspir­ing exam­ples of urban gar­den­ing from art, archi­tec­ture, design and also gueril­la gar­den­ing. Some of our favourite exam­ples include the String Gar­den and work of artist Lois Wein­berg­er.
