Home Is Where the Heart Is
Beltzhoover Neighborhood Council lot with raised beds. Planted and harvested by community members. Everyone knows the blue building.
Colors on a Cloudy Day
Seeing this artwork in a place that some assume isn't safe shows me there is always more than what meets the eye.
Often overlooked or just written off as unattended weeds, but perennials have a reoccuring beauty that takes time - you will eventually see!
When Family Traditions and Practices are Passed On Bhutanese families work dilligently to farm in these spaces, growing wonderful crops of many different varieties.

If I Grew Up on a Farm
I imagine this is what my farm would look like! Not just this one picture, but all of them. All of these places, spaces, techniques, traditions also influence me to wonder… What if I had access to land to farm? What if my ancestors were able to pass down traditions of survival? What if I were a farmer? Beltzhoover showed me I can still be that farmer I never knew about!
