Gardentopia is the Matera2019 project on green culture and active citizenship bred by contemporary art: a green utopia that transforms gardens into community places that are accessible to all citizens, with the involvement of 18 artists coordinated by the curator Pelin Tan who will work on 32 community gardens spread throughout the region.

The artist Michael Leung will work alongside the citizens in the community gardens of Agoragri e Namastè.

Michael Leung is a designer, urban farmer and visiting lecturer. He was born in London and moved to Hong Kong in 2009 to complete a Masters in Design. His work
ranges from conceptual objects for the dead to urban agriculture projects such as The
HK FARMers'Almanac (2014-2015) and Community Farming Project. Michael is a
visiting lecturer at Hong Kong Baptist University and at the Intercommon Institute,
where he teaches socially engaged art (MA) and social design, respectively. His research focuses on Insurrectionary Agricultural Milieux, rhizomatic forms of agriculture that exist in local response to global conditions of biopolitics and neoliberalism. An amalgamation of his work, zines and fictional stories can be seen
and purchased at a neighbourhood street market stall called Kai Fong Pai Dong,
located in a vegetable market in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong. The market stall reconfigures public space into a community garden and a platform that welcomes post-work and post-capitalist action.
