A project on the idea of a garden in relation to the place where we live and work: the college and its environment, our habits.

All the notes taken during the sessions will have to be collected.
Performance walk/plant: geolocation of the plants strips and interstices // Explain the principle of the project and the guerillas gardener // With the map, outside, find your bearings on the map and see the shade/light situations today in groups of 2, then find your bearings in the space // Draw the usual passages, the places where we rest.... and where we could plant things: in the shade in the light, where it doesn't bother anyone / where it can be seen. Wet or dry places? A garden has to be seen inside and out, it needs certain things to grow. But also cracks, holes, where to put seed bombComment on sème? // The seasons: In winter preparing the ground: lasagne // In spring scratching the earth / lombricompost amendment / sowing which seeds / covering watering // Watching documentaries on sowing and planting: the guerilla gardeners // Drawing according to the chosen locations
