is an exciting and ambitious project devised by artist Lisa Cheung, working in collaboration with Avant-Gardening, that aims to engage an entire community with creative food growing and arts projects. Lisa Cheung will work with participants to design and build the mobile allotment, a modular moveable structure that will become the central hub for events and community based activities that promote creativity, healthy eating and environmental awareness.

Mobile Allotment will be taking place in and around Woolwich Common, starting in April 2009

As part of the London Festival of Architecture, Avant-Gardening joined forces with public works for a three day showcase in Canary Wharf. Passers by, shoppers, commuters and workers were asked to share their gardening tips and stories, to plant a pot plant, to smile for the camera and contribute to our on-site publication Green on the Move.

The Mobile Porch is a mobile mini-architecture designed for roaming the public sphere made by publicworks. This project is a collaboration between public works and Avant-Gardening. For more information please visit the Mobile Porch page
