The Meadow Network
The Meadow Network project, which was started in 2009, is rooted in a broad series of interviews with city residents from diverse backgrounds. What traditions of growing, preserving, festival and bartering do they hold on to? How would they see these as manifesting in the cities that they reside in and their everyday life? What would future urban green space come to resemble?
When we embarked on the project, our plan was to interview people at city farms, open markets, gardening stores and public parks, talking to people about where they came from, their own memories and connections to rural life. Since then, we have also worked through the internet to talk with people farther afield.The interviews, accompanied by photographs, drawings and maps, will be edited into a series of free newspapers.
We have published three issues to date, and two more issues are currently in planning. PDF versions of the newspapers can be downloaded on this site.
