The experimental garden is exploring the relationships between garden and citizen in contemporary urban society i.e. nature and culture. Through this case study the Big-Bag Garden gives a new chance to the forgotten or abandoned gardens of Tallinn. For one summer the stubborn settlers of lost gardens will be brought to the Estonian Museum of Art (KUMU) courtyard and get another chance to survive.
Urban gardens, based on temporarily empty plots, have great potential in strengthening the social cohesion. People gather for the common goal – growing ecological food, meeting other people, organizing events – in such way give a new valuable layer in the better balanced urban life.
120 Big-Bags with plants are placed in the KUMU courtyard in two rows as the pointer to the critical issue – the future of the homeless gardens. The plants of these gardens are tough ones that have been survived despite the changes around them. Each bag has equipped with the label where you can find the description of the garden: original site, names of the plants and the date of replanting.
Homeless gardens will give a rich material for thinking about the role and the potential of empty plots in the cities. Exposition will point out the issues of urban ecology, urban horticulture and social engagement. In the dense urban environment people need another kind of contact with nature. Small gardens embody a little model of nature – the place where one can follow natural processes, cycles of the vegetation – and in such way understand the larger intergal whole.
