What is Farmlab?



What is Farmlab?

The team behind the Not A Cornfield project in Downtown Los Angeles has become Farmlab, a short-term multi-disciplinary investigation of land use issues that are related to sustainability, livability, and health.

Among much more, as a nascent think tank, art production studio, and cultural performance venue, Farmlab is exploring what role, if any, the team can and should play in matters related to lessons raised and learned from the Not A Cornfield project.

Continuing to serve as a catalyst for community involvement and change through the development of art actions, projects, and otherwise, Farmlab is dedicated to the preservation and perpetuity of all living things.

For a more complete answer, we invite you to check back again with us in the coming months -- as the project team continues to learn, evaluate, reflect, brainstorm, tinker, and incubate.

Farmlab reminds me that I am a member of a forgotten but not extinct tribe of city-dwelling naturalists with a shared sense of wonder at the power of nature. Thank you Lauren for reinvigorating this dialogue.

I am reminded about a time in 1990 when I walked the dump next to CAl Poly that is now part of a sustainable community. Farm Lab is a great place for inspiration. I'm glad to have FL so close to an architectural project of ours. THANKS for the breath of fresh air.

This seems like a great group and project. So happy to find out about it through a Lucas Reiner painting.
A wonderful meeting of art and agrarian reform and Lauren Bon!

One of the greatest places in Los Angeles to learn information that can lead to real change--through careful praxis and fun.

Hi, I'm interested in the farmlab and visiting it but I'm unclear exactly what it is. Is it something that I can visit anytime during the open hours or are there specific events there? If so, is there a calendar of events somewhere? Also, does this have anything to do with the South Central LA Community Gardens?

I hope to hear from someone!
Danielle
