Divided between the community

Divided between the community

Context:

In the case of an impending development date being set in motion by developers, this method can be employed prior to the demolition of the wasteland.

 

Method:

Encourage the surrounding community to transplant the plants; flowers shrubs, trees, mosses and weeds from the wasteland into their gardens, balconies and homes.  This act can be seen as a token means of safeguarding an element of the environment in question; giving the plants the opportunity to continue the legacy of the wasteland in a different context.  The entire process can be achieved with or without the consent of developers and contactors involved in the prescribed future of the wasteland.

 

Elementary equation:

Habitation + negotiation/ implementation + transplantation = conservation
