Gärtnerei Fuldaaue Kassel has abandoned its reliance on industrial machinery and returned to fundamental agricultural methods, using innovative and sustainable production techniques. Ever since, the garden has been yielding seasonal organic vegetables on 0.7 hectares of land. Such a practice discusses the ecological connections with Kassel or even with a larger scale of geological space. It addresses the ecological thinking and the complex way of life of the local people, which has existed, been invented, and enacted against the background of the existing discourse of natural ecology.

In collaboration with Gärtnerei Fuldaaue, the Water System School studies the mutual restoration between humans and soil. The Water System School Workshop Series by lumbung artists Cao Minghao & Chen Jianjun aims to encourage practices and discussions related to materials, species, ecological knowledge, and sheltering techniques.
