Rootstock

Rootstock - Urban farming and gardening

The project explores the presence of gardening and farming activities in the city of London. Focusing on two farming groups - Core Landscapes and The Garden - I wanted to show how the liaison with the land is strong even in one of the worldwide megalopolis like London. This sustainable process of development struggles to survive but in other cases it found the full support of nearby citizens. A certain sensibility to the nature and a knowledge of the natural process of food production is very strong in the cities despite the bursting building processes of modern economic cities assets.
