    Greenhouse: 5' x 8 1/2' x 16'; Bulletin board: 78" x 40" x 12"

    Seeking to address issues of subsistence and sustainability in an urban context where space is a limited and highly sought after commodity, the artist has retrofitted a Mazda pick up truck with a self-sufficient greenhouse and has positioned it within the space of the Park. The greenhouse grows a variety of organic vegetables, herbs and flowers. The artist will have scheduled maintenance times where he will be on-site and available to the public to give guided tours and address related issues, such as the watering system, pest control, oil and agriculture.
