GM2 - ROUGH TRADE EDITIONS x GARDEN MUSEUM

Horticultural Appropriation
is a conversation between an organic food grower and an artist about the possibility and necessity of bringing a decolonial lens to the practice of horticulture. Taking place within West Dean Art College and Gardens, the exchange explores how attempts to decolonise collections and spaces currently happening in arts and cultural institutions might inform the interrogation of the colonial history at the heart of Britain’s gardens and gardening.

In partnership with the Garden Museum, these special Rough Trade Editions examine the idea of 'the garden' and more with a group of writers and gardeners generating new work. Has there ever been so much rich thought around the radical potential of gardening, with so much urgency surrounding how we maintain out little bits of earth , of the meaning that plants carry.
