#SOSMobileGarden S.O.S. Mobile Garden can be a discarded shopping cart retrofitted into a mobile edible garden that Tattfoo uses to parade around to engage the public. Discarded shopping carts can be found in many different places and are utilized by individuals who have survived through economies of recycling. These wire frame vehicles often represent a lifestyle of consumption and excess as much as the objects they contain, and also seem to be subject to the same fated disposability. While shopping carts are often a sign of homelessness, urban decay or neglect, they can also be a symbol of renewal and transformation of our food system. Anything with wheels and room to grow will work!
