Guest☞ Isamu Nishimura, Takashi Azumai and others (Nakagyo / Hana to Midori no Kai)
Host ☞ Kyoto Experiment Co-directors
The fourth installment of our talk series that addresses the question “What is experimental?” from various angles is on urban agriculture, a phenomenon recently gaining traction in metropolises like New York, Paris, and San Francisco. Its aim is to combat issues such as climate change and poverty, as well as promote greenification and sense of community, in order to make cities sustainable. In fact, for the past 14 years, there have been gardening and beekeeping efforts going on in Kyoto too, on the rooftop of the Nakagyo Ward Office! We’ll be live streaming from the rooftop garden, where we’ll be speaking with the volunteers involved.

Kyoto Mitsubachi Garden Promotion Project
Launched in 2011, Kyoto Mitsubachi Garden Promotion Project is an initiative to plant trees in the city through the partnership of Miyako Mitsubashi no Kai, a residents’ volunteer group, and Kyoto University of Advanced Science and Nakagyo Ward Office. Growing the Japanese honey tree in the rooftop garden of Nakagyo Ward Office, the project encourages people to plant trees and aspires for a greener city based on the idea of symbiosis with the honey tree, which can teach us about the richness of nature.
