ENST Brown Bag: Trees of Tomorrow

For this hands-on ENST Brown Bag, artist and Assistant Professor of Art and Art History, Margaretha Haughwout will talk about her art/ activist collaborative the Guerrilla Grafters, and a new project Trees of Tomorrow. The Guerrilla Grafters graft fruit bearing branches onto the ornamental fruit trees that line city streets. They declare that "over time, delicious, nutritious fruit is made available to urban residents through these grafts. We aim to prove that a culture of care can be cultivated from the ground up and aim to turn city streets into food forests, and unravel civilization one branch at a time." Lunch will be provided by Hamilton Whole Foods.
