關於〔雜草稍慢 Weed Day〕
Weed Day is ran by an artist dual. With a similar background in herbal culture they met when foraging together for herbs within the city, and together they started to be more aware and conscious of the current city landscapes and they ways in which humans interact with nature. They make tea and other everyday essentials with the weeds that grow naturally, they usually choose the forage the more dominate plants to leave a more balanced and diverse combination of plants and insects.
To them the tea speaks for the land, it is also a huge part of everyday life in Taiwan. To them it is the start of the conversation to help people be aware of the environment its diversity, Every time we make tea it is with a different combination of plants (usually more than 20 type of plants) thus for every tea we make we write the ingredients to show people all the diverse amount of plants that surround us. We want people to also understand that we depend on all the microorganism, insects, plants and animals to continue to stay alive.
For the two of us we believe that we all as humans need to become the protector of natures biodiversity.
