Listening to the roots

Next lab

The garden is a communication network hub under the earth. Here we think about the networks above ground as well.

Beneath the garden lies a maze of networked roots. A system of natural technology that allows each plant, tree and a course of mycorrhizae to talk to each other. Transmitting dangers and communicating changes in the environment. This intricate network underground performs similarly to that of our rich community, friendships, and working relationships that exist within these communal spaces.

Whether you’ve visited the garden once or used to call this space home when it was the Tidemill primary school gardens, we want to hear from you. We’ll be collecting stories, tales, memories and anecdotes of this incredible space. We invite you along to share and record these moments to help build up the archive for our second workshop day as we listen to the personified roots of the garden.
