Red Banks Pawpaw Circle

Starting next week, Fieldfaring will be working in Cincinnati, OH to plant the Red Banks Pawpaw Circle. This project is part of our work with the exhibition Green Acres: Artists Farming Fields, Greenhouses and Abandoned Lots, which opens on the September 21st.

The Pawpaw circle is produced in collaboration with Cincinnati’s Civic Garden Center, and occupies a vacant traffic island at the intersection of Erie Avenue and Red Bank Rd, and is a part of the CGC’s overall plan to turn this unused acreage into a self-sustaining point for foraging local foods. Our Pawpaw circle will be planted with 19 trees drawn from 4 different pawpaw cultivars. IIf all grows well, they will bear fruit within the next 3 years, well before they reach full growth.
