Back to laboring over here at Deep Root HQ.
Mike James, of Deep Root Canada Corp., snapped this picture in Vancouver over the weekend. Looks like an group called the Stick Shift Project — “a collaborative act of urban transformation” — has taken the engines and other guts out of four cars and replaced them with dirt and young fruit trees.
The group hopes to raise awareness of greenery in the urban environment and, more specifically, to build enthusiasm for a public orchard in Vancouver. I hope they are successful! 1) A public orchard would be awesome, and 2) well… they will never get decent fruit out of the trees as they are currently planted (I get it, it’s a statement, etc. — just saying).
