The Wildflowers of Detroit : Community Ecology
This is not exactly related to Bottle Imp Productions, but is a project friends of ours are working on and I feel deserves some attention and support. Best said by them on their Kickstarter site:
One pervasive vision of Detroit is its ruins – the monolithic hulks of an industrial era gone by, documented in striking photographs and tales of urban exploration. Missing from this narrative is the other side of the coin. In place of those decaying buildings grow plots of wildflowers and wildlife. After knowing these secret gardens and hidden blooms, we feel this crucial story needs to be told. Thats where you come in. Wildflowers of Detroit is a community technology project for cataloging wild plants growing in Detroit, an effort which can enable people’s appreciation of its open space. Though experiencing and appreciating the “empty” fields, we can discover together the emerging ecology of this area. Our technologies collaborative WinterRoot is teaming up with Detroit’s Omnicorp Hackerspace and Alley Culture’s Seed Exchange to bring this vision into being.
