Libera Scuola del Giardino

The Pav Pop Up shop comes after one year of work of the Libera Scuola del Giardino group, developed as a workshop-based expansion on the themes explored in 2015 in Grow it Yourself, an exhibition curated by Marco Scotini. The workshop-based journey, which is part of AEF|Attività Educative e Formative, born from the encounter with Wapke Feenstra, as part of a year of research and creation by the group and Andrea Caretto|Raffaella Spagna to produce plant-based products. 
The aim of the project is to define a new and specific collective identity, based on shared experiences, both in terms of planning and implementation, for the purposes of raising awareness of the natural resources that exist in the PAV area.
 Through the various stages of researching, cultivating and transforming botanical species, the project intends to bridge the gap between consumption and cultural production as, by participating in the creation of a consumer good, the producer and consumer of the end product are woven together.
The project represents a direct contribution to the International Village Shop.
 Thanks to the working group, the Libera Scuola del Giardino sees the progressive launch of temporary initiatives for the sale and exchange of products obtained through cultivation, collection and processing of raw ingredients. Specifically, a quadrangular area is set out within the park, divided into four sections for growing vegetables, and adjacent portions of land are made available for the spontaneous growth of field-based species, left free to express the maximum degree of biodiversity that the area has to offer.
 The cultivation of the garden, the spontaneous areas and the entire PAV territory give rise to the production of seasonal products, obtained through the cultivation of raw materials; this is combined with the creation of packaging to present the materials in a form suitable for exchange and sale as art multiples.
