What Goes Up, Must Come Down: the undoing of the Gazarbor at Montview Neighborhood Farm

March 29th, 2012  |  by Published in C3 news, featured, Uncategorized

On Sunday, March 18th, C3 collective members Javiera Benavente, Carolyn Clayton, Kathy Couch, and Jackie Dougherty joined Montview Neighborhood Farm  co-founder Lisa DePiano to bring down the Gaz-arbor, a hybrid gazebo/arbor outdoor structure we collaboratively designed and built in the summer of 2011.  The Gaz-arbor is part of L/A/N/D, an on-going collaboration between C3 and Montview Neighborhood Farm, which explores our relationships to land, place and history through creative place-making and storytelling.

After six years of farming on a three-acre parcel of city-owned conservation land, Montview Neighborhood Farm is uprooting and going mobile through the Montview Diaspora Project, which will spread perennial plantings throughout the Connecticut River Valley.    This project will be launched with a Plant Swap/Plant Sale on Saturday, May 5th from 12-5 at the Dynamite Space followed by a Dance Party at 9 PM to celebrate Montview.
