On September 10th, 2011, ISTANBUL GARDEN WORKSHOP ACTIVITIES…

Edible Estates garden headquarters at SALT Beyoglu, Istanbul

…today and tomorrow (plus a talk this evening) have brought me back to town to check in on the Edible Estate rooftop hothouse garden headquarters on top of SALT Beyoglu, the ambitious new art institution (just before the Istanbul Biennial opens later this week) – and we have been lucky to find Pelin Demireli to work with on some of these garden activities…

Pelin Demireli leads gardening and cooking workshops for children with organizations including Sulukule Volunteer Association, Şişli Ecological Market, Kuzguncuk Elementary School, Kınalı Summer Camp and Minik Fırın. She is also engaged in a network of local farmers and seed swappers working to make traditional seeds available both within and outside of İstanbul. (SALT website)
