People powered hydroponic food gardens made from recycled and repurposed commercial products are wheeled about to engage the public while reclaiming areas made unsuitable for cultivation. These mobile gardens promote urban sustainability and extend with humor and levity, the ecological “knowledge of the moment;” by offering simple, positive changes that can be enacted to increase self sufficiency—an activity that can be replicated long after the artist and the art have moved on.
