A New Edible Estate in Manhattan

Posted in Exhibits by Audrey Tran on May 31, 2009

Fritz Haeg, the artist who started turning front lawns into luscious food gardens in 2005  plans to bring another “Edible Estate” to the Big Apple City this summer. Here’s a video about one of the first Estates. Brian Sullivan from Descanso Garden (CA) outlines some of the key  questions Haeg tries to raise through these food landscapes.

The opening for the new installation is set for September 14th.  I’m pumped and thinking about creating a map of all the great ecologically minded sites opening in NY this summer.  Any suggestions?  So far, I’m sure I’ll add Haeg’s new addition, Holten’s Tree Museum, and older sites like Alan Sonfist’s Time Landscape.

If any other must-see sites/sculptures/installations/or spaces come to mind, please let me know. I’ll update on the status of the map as it comes along.

    You should use Google maps to make the map, I think they allow you to drop pins and label them.

    This is wonderful. Considering how people are so into eco and growing things. We humans are good at things like this, growing things to eat. It is easy to forget……..hahaha
