We do not sow
Urban Fauna and Outer Green emerge from the city waste, from the excessive products of the metabolism of the city. Animals feed on the remains of human food and tenderness. The are being warmed by excessive heat of our homes and the subway.
Outer Green feed on territory. It adopts city wastelands, roofs of abandoned buildings, railroad embankments, even gaps between stones on the pavement. By occupying empty space, Outer Green tuns it into a natural city park. It is more successful in arranging parks than the official administration of Moscow city. To make such park a public space one should install there a wi-fi transmitter and a bench.
