CLUB DE LOS DEDOS VERDES 2008


El Club de los Dedos Verdes, 2008 Commissioned by Intermediae, Madrid

El Club de los Dedos Verdes invited the neighbours of Legapzi area to help plant flowers for a community garden as part of Avante Garden at Matadero.  Mobile planting stations visited the  neighbourhood, playground and street corners surrounding of Matadero to ask residents for the assistances.  The garden the neighbours collectively planted was then arranged by the artist into hanging garden similar to traditional gardens found in the south of Spain.  Neighbours were invited to help care for the garden all summer long and once autumn came a closing party was held to rehouse all the plants.
