Homeless Garden Project

garden totem project…
Earth Art Studio students were invited to create a garden fruit and vegetable totem under the direction of sculptor Jenni Ward. The totem is now on permanent display at The Homeless Garden Project’s Natural Bridges farm in Santa Cruz. The totem is comprised of over 20 hand-built ceramic fruits and veggies that are prevalent in Santa Cruz County agricultural production. Students learned about the produce and the HGP’s mission to help people find the tools they need to build a home in the world through their urban farm and garden. Art heart sales helped make this project possible by supplying the necessary materials to create and install the totems safely in the garden. a reception was also provided for the artists and their families to celebrate the beautiful work.

 

seed bomb workshop…
Jenni Ward lead a seed bomb making workshop at the Homeless Garden Project’s downtown store for kids to make gifts for Mother’s Day. Using clay, compost and wildflower seeds the participants formed the materials into creative creations that once planted or ‘bombed’ into the garden, would create beautiful blooms for years to come. Art heart sales helped provide for the materials for this project.
