Gardens of Algae are believed to have begun with the Aztecs skimming edible and protein rich spirulina from the surface of Mexico’s Lake Texcoco it’s now being used for food and fuel production. Algae is commonly found in gardens, but rarely is it celebrated.
So we’ve made a garden to produce and show the variety of uses of algae. looking at the imaginative possibilities for productive gardens of locally produced energy and food.
