Herbarium from the urban fields

Herbarium from the urban fields represents an in situ exploration of existing social and vegetational geographies within an urban neighbourhood in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The work is a collection of notes and propositions based on a series of the authors’ foraging field-trips in the urban wilds. The exploration assembles a harvest gathered through picking up edible plants, walking, talking to people, interviewing and facilitating workshops, cherishing spontaneity and random encounters.

Current findings introduce some propositions for local co-existence such as a map of urban wilds and common spaces, an archive of tools for improvisation, alternative food labelling system, collective foraging economies and curiosity interviews.
