My project looks to reconnect inhabitants of high-density urban spaces with basic systems of food cultivation through practices of urban gardening. A series of garden hubs and upcycled personal planters become part of a food growing and skill sharing system linking public and private spaces. The hubs consist of two pavilion shed structures, a greenhouse and community learning building which facilitate teaching and skill sharing for schools, businesses, families and community groups.
