subVert; Los Angeles, 2008-2009
subVert; Los Angeles was a multifaceted community agriculture project that served as my thesis project along with the thesis document, The Alchemy of Dirt.

In the Elysian Valley neighborhood along the LA River, where I was a resident, gardens were instituted and events revolving aroung the planting and harvesting, agricultural ritual, were observed. Produce from these gardens was distributed freely.

The f.r.o.g.s., free-cycled resident operated garden systems, were mobile garden units made from shopping carts that were rescued from the LA River, repurposed, planted and then sponsored by residents from the surrounding community.
