Growing things at the Festival

One of last year’s presenters, Micah Donovan, was inspired to create something new to install in our Festival space: Grow Tubes. This yummy installation (I consumed more wheatgrass and sprouts over the three days of the 2010 Festival than I usually do in a month!) was a wonderful addition to the Festival space, and had the added benefit that the sprouts grew so fast that the tubes looked noticeably different from one day to the next.

 

This year, I’m happy to say that he’s back to show us how the Grow Tubes idea has grown into an ongoing project to make producing your own food at home beautiful—with a lightning talk and a display in the poster exhibition.
