Lawns to Loaves explores the limits and possibilities of where our daily bread comes from. The goals are ambitious yet simple:
- To successfully cultivate a hundred pounds of organic spring wheat within the city of Vancouver
- To engage our communities in a thought experiment regarding what defines a farm and to symbolically challenge the dominant scale of grain production
- To overlook traditional notions of efficiency and productivity for a moment in favor of the power of symbolism
- To teach, engage, and excite all those who encounter this project at any and every stage
In May 2011, the Lawns to Loaves collective plants our first seeds in the ground.
