NATURE TRIP: WHAT ARE YOU GROWING?
This very special Nature Trip was created by the Grubber team and...
🇹🇭Jen and her mum Yuphin aka Tuckata
🇵🇭Mano and his friend Karen
🇻🇳Ivy and her mum cô Phi
First shown at ROOTS Exhibition in London 2021 - Curated by Baesianz x Grubber.
An extension of Grubber’s popular Nature Trips video series. Nature Trips brings together friends of Grubber from around the world to guide viewers on a journey through the landscapes and flora of their local surroundings via Instagram stories. However, the short film takes a much more intimate approach, allowing the audience to be voyeurs in conversations between various participants and their friends and family. Video calls are the chosen medium for participants speaking from locations around the world as they give the viewers a tour of their gardens. One participant, the London-based Jen Quan, calls her mother in Thailand to explore what she’s growing, making space for conversation and connections through nature that they may never have considered before.
𝑹𝑶𝑶𝑻𝑺 exhibition was a collaborative project by Baesianz and Grubber curating work by Asian artists and communities to explore nature, its healing qualities, and the decolonisation of horticulture. The week-long exhibition and events program featured works by 27 artists of Asian heritage alongside a live performance by Petit Oiseau, a yoga session exploring intuitive movement by Fuji Yoga, and a workshop exploring traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic healing by 慧琳 Sophie Walker and Savannah Sinhal.
Artists: Karen Bolilia, Nash Cruz, Puer Deorum, Nina Durban, Jatinder Singh Durhailay, Kaede Fujimoto, Mano Gonzales, King-Wey Hii-Ko, Dashti Jahfar, Melissa Kitty Jarram, Peng Jiahao, Sami Kimberley, April Lin 林森, Azura Lovisa, Akshay Mahajan, Charlotte Mei, Annie Mackinnon, Emily Murayama, Zehra Nazli, Jennifer Quan, Suren Seneviratne, Savannah Sinhal, Gaurab Thakali, Hannah Thomas Uose, Ivy Vo, Sophie Huilin Walker, and Mildred Cheng Hoi Yan.

We plan to do another in the future, so get in touch if you'd like to apply for a stall.
We are extremely excited to announce that last week saw the inaugural @grubbercommunity ramble!
We felt that it was only right to organise the first walk in Grubber founder Jessica's, home county of Cornwall. Known for its breathtaking coastline, mythical moors, and of course, delicious pasties - it goes without saying that there is plenty of fun and adventure to be had in Cornwall.
We invited some of our old and new friends to a windy Bodmin Moor to join us on a circular walk up both Rough Tor and Brown Willy, which is the highest point in Cornwall. We encountered an amazing array of wildlife, the wild horses being a highlight. The walk allows for some spectacular views of the North Cornwall coast and the China Clay hills around St Austell. We felt truly lucky to be able to appreciate the vast landscape, something that felt even more special and rare after being confined to our homes for so long.
Our goal is to get people enjoying nature and horticulture as much as possible and for as little money as possible. We can’t wait to have more adventures like this and if this sounds like something you would like to get involved with or take part in then stay tuned. We will be announcing future Grubber Walks via our newsletter and Instagram so make sure you subscribe and follow @grubbercommunity
