Memory Garden is a collection of recordings of childhood garden memories. It is an on-growing project initiated by Jared Gradinger and presented in Moving in November. These five minute recordings are available for listening through the link on the right. The project honors personal accounts of the gardens from our childhood reconnecting us to the lands we grew up with. These recordings are accessible anytime.
“I invite you to download or stream one or more memories as you walk down the street to your next appointment, as you sit on the train going home, or while walking through a park on a rainy autumn day. Each memory is a gift: to the rememberer, to you, to me, to Nature.
Jared Gradinger is a choreographer, artist, performer, and gardener born in the USA and based in Berlin since 2002. He is an interdisciplinary artist working in the fields of performance, dance, social art, and Nature.

Thank you: all the rememberers, all the memories, all the gardens. The grandmas and the donkeys. The apples and the nettle. The storms, the swings, the beets, the soil, and the seeds. The memory creators. The deva of remembering and remembrance. Barenzwinger Gallery, PACT Zollverein, Tian Rotteveel, Claire Vivienne Sobbotke, Stefan Rusconi, Moving in November and its team.
