The theme and title has its origin in the place. Staffanstorp is a relatively young municipality; settlers in growth. Here are some old mature gardens, but most of them are newly constructed.
There are a plenty of gardening books and television shows about gardens and gardening. Lots of recipes for what is right in a given situation. You can get professional help from garden and landscape architects, landscapers and nursery-gardens. But what is it that makes your garden yours, yours really?
The exhibition is based on observations from my garden. Observations of it and of my work in it, my cultivation. Garden experiences are extremely subjective, yours are perhaps diametrically opposed.
As a visitor, you are invited to attend the exhibition’s interactive part, to write down your own garden experiences and thereby convey them to others. You can even show off your garden if you want, by pictures or by inviting people to it.
