Was an art project in a park in Copenhagen consisting of a gathering place and a website made with the aim of discussing alternative forms of sociality and organization of the park in the face of it's renewal. The gathering place was made with a minimum use of resources departing in an ecological mindset.

The show has ended but the website will remain to show the research. A free catalogue on all projects in the show is available.

The reserach on St Petersburg Urban Gardening Club is done thanks to a previous research done by the Danish artist Camilla Berner in St Petersburg
