Throughout the Our City Festival, Phnom Penh will be visited by little gardens on wheels.

Small carts filled with living plants and flowers will bring unexpected life and colour to the city streets. The mobile gardens will visit quiet lanes and busy market places, famous monuments and new shopping strips - bringing a sense of transformation and joy, and prompting us to remember nature amid the bustle of the city. The mobile gardens may travel alone or come to form an instant public park. They will visit Our City Festival locations and unexpected places.

The encounters and formations made by the Mobile gardens will be documented and form an on-going exhibition at jGALLERY throughout the festival.

Mobile Gardens has received additional support from Cintri and Prek Leap National Agricultural College.

To be involved in the project and volunteer to push a cart please register online at www.ourcityfestival.org/mobilegardens.html
