AlgaeGarden, which celebrates the beauty and productive potential of algae via its diversity and meaning, will be on display from June 23 to September 30 at The International Garden Festival in Quebec, Canada. The display explores and demonstrates possibilities for how algae might become an evocative and productive part of our daily lives.

AlgaeGarden

The creators of the AlgaeGarden position it standing between the landscape, the artistic and the scientific world, and present their algae organized by color and species in curtains of tubes hanging from steel frames. The garden leads the visitor to appreciate algae both as an alternative to oil and other energy sources, as well as a source of food and nutrition.

Architects for the AlgaeGarden are Heather Ring, Brenda Parker, and Synnøve Fredericks; and collaborators include the Canadian Phycological Culture Centre, Martin Coopering,
NutrOcéan Rimouski, and the
Society for General Microbiology.

The annual International Garden Festival is recognized as one of the most important events of its kind in North America and one of the leading annual garden festivals in the world. It is considered a unique forum for innovation and experimentation, providing a showcase and launching pad for participating designers from a variety of disciplines. Since 2000, more than 900,000 visitors have explored 110 gardens created by over 220 designers from 15 countries.
