Seed Central
by Williams, Julie Ann, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 12; 1486695
Abstract (Summary)

Using art education models and collaboration as a strategy for an interdisciplinary, community-based project, Seed Central was a one-year artist in residency at a non-profit residential group home for at-risk youth. Seed Central used the inherently therapeutic gardening experience to set the stage for projects that were designed to teach the residents about gardening, composting, sustainability, recycling, nutrition, fabrication, sculpture, photography and video. A video documenting the transformation of the garden site uses a variety of techniques that allow the participants to share their experience, while protecting their privacy.
