This photographic series is about community gardens and the land parcel I take care of with my family and friends, it document the evolution of nature in our garden but also capture the way in which other people organise life on their plot. Each garden has its own relationship with the living world. Many attempt perfect control over cultivation, protecting vegetables from disease and seeking utmost productivity. In the collective adventure that is our community garden, we let nature become a moving garden welcoming wandering plants so beneficial to insects. There are photographs of childhood games and summers in the gardens. The pleasure of time spent here transmits knowledge of plants and attentive care for all life sustaining species.
