2011-2012
Notes:
Mockingbird Farms operates as a community of friends, the result of a unique combination of a private home and a community garden. The home was built in 1990 and the garden was later established in 2008 after a neighboring plot of land became available. Rather than being subdivided into individual plots, the garden is managed as a single shared plot (humorously referred to as the "communist plot") that also serves as a gathering space for social events as well as a community garden. The members of the garden community share in experimenting with gardening techniques and communicate with each other through a private blog that allows them to coordinate planting and harvesting efforts and to plan social gatherings.
Persons associated with the garden include: Paul Fields, Lambert Landscape Company (landscape architect, 2000, 2008); and Duncan Fultan (landscape architect, 2009).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, building and landscape plans, blog excerpts, and other information.
