The Branch Herb Garden is a space to re-connect ourselves with nature amid the urban setting of Osaka, and it also serves as a central point for many of our workshops and events.
Administered by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and the Centre for Contemporary Art and the Natural World (CCANW). The branch is one of two organizations who received commendations, in addition to the overall award winner.
When we decided to open an ecological art space, we made a firm decision to design and build as much as possible ourselves. As a result, most materials were salvaged from demolished homes, and all of the work was done by our hands and those of like-minded volunteers. Here is the result!
