Glass Houses & Green Futures
Glass Houses & Green Futures is a celebration of the horticultural knowledge and passion that exists across Fremantle. Conversation and cultivation will take place in five artist-built hothouses, led by the artists and gardening enthusiasts who keep Fremantle green, growing and blossoming.
Experience the history of gardening and imagine its future while sharing and exchanging local stories, botanical knowledge, growing skills and plants.
The program of events will unfold with the shared knowledge from the people of White Gum Valley Community Orchard, Hilton Harvest Community Garden, Ecoburbia and us (of course!)
The glass houses for this project have been designed and constructed by a group of green-thumbed installation artists including Catia Dolzadelli, Claire Bailey, Ricky Gibson, Andrew Sunley-Smith and Pascal Proteau, and our plant guru Claire Greenhill will be curating the contents of one based around repurposing and plant gifting.
Each of the site-specific, glass-rooved structures will be used as the location for a series of public sessions across Fremantle and its satellite precincts to honour and expand on the existing culture of gardening, growing and harvesting in our community.
Drop by your local public session or make a tour of all five.
