THE TINY FARM FOREST WAGON

This project is a tribute and testament to the beauty, and the systems here, in these Black communities along the Delaware River, that are already quietly thriving; the environmental justice already growing.

The Tiny Farm Forest Wagon...

is a mobile art classroom/greenhouse, dedicated to building new knowledge around community wellness through public art projects that identify, preserve, and promote the threads of wellness that run through Black community life. 

We build gardens and throw great art parties, we make delicious plant-based foods and we ask the community to consider:

What makes you well?

What keeps you from it?

ABOUT THE TINY FARM FOREST WAGON

The Tiny Farm Forest Wagon, sponsored by a Boundaries and Bridges Grant from the Barra Foundation, is based on the Work of Dr. George Washington Carver in the 1930s, he had a horse drawn wagon, later a bus, that did mobile education to combat poverty and hunger in the south by providing updated farming techniques and cooking demonstrations.  He also brought along a nurse, and introduced new crops. Like Dr. Carver's Wagon, The Tiny Farm Forest Wagon will be utilized by an interdiscplinary team of community artists, healers, thinkers, and growers.

 

WHO WE ARE

 We consult communities, corporations, institutions, children and private persons on utopian concepts of freedom and the bliss of humanity redefined. We create art that challenges us to imagine freedom...

We are eco, we are cultural workers, writers, painters, performers, diy, entrepreneurial and futurist. We plant gardens. We sculpt and build with cob. Misty: I make pictures and tell stories like my grandmother. Ralph: I make things grow and tell jokes like my pop pop...

Our practice is one of intentional path carving...improvisation in it's purest sense...find seemingly disparate things and make them a whole.

This is how an artistic life is built. A collage. Layer by layer.

This is how you build a song, a sculpture, a play, a story, a forest, a business, a raw vegan lasagna...
