Creating Edible Urban Worlds: Techniques and Politics of Guerrilla Grafting at PioneerWorks

This online workshop with PioneerWorks will introduce participants to the basics of fruit tree grafting, with attention to urban street trees. I will demonstrate basic grafting techniques, discuss strategies for grafting on city streets, and talk about the stakes involved for tactical urban commons. I will outline the dynamics of public and private space in urban contexts, and how this guerrilla practice situates in larger interventionist, ecological, and social art contexts.
