Exploring the sustainability potentials of the private garden
Summary, in English
Everyday actions and practices in private gardens can often be interpreted as both positive and negative in relation to sustainability, and such ambiguities will be exemplified in our presentation. In our concluding discussion we specifically wish to shed light on the private garden as a potentially important site for the development of sustainable nature/culture interactions. By acknowledging the sustainability potential of vernacular practices that are in fact carried out by numerous gardeners in ordinary private gardens, this research shows that inspiration for sustainability goals can be found also in everyday garden culture.
