Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as/at Ptarmigan during these years.
The Ptarmigan staff will build vertical windowfarms to grow vegetables, flowers and herbs as a year-round DIY indoor farm. We're going to attempt to construct a a muti-column window farm in the blue room of Ptarmigan, using available online plans, so why don't you join us?
From windowfarms.org: "Windowfarms let you grow food year-round inside while maximizing space. They are vertical food-growing gardens that use a dirt-free technique called hydroponics. You can buy a kit or build your own using low-impact or recycled local materials. Having a windowfarm is more about the activity and experience of windowfarming, these are living systems; not just a pretty thing to look at."
We'll start spray-painting bottles and gathering other materials Friday night around 19:00, and Saturday at 12:00 we'll start working through the plans. Come along if you'd like to help or just want to hang out.
