In a somewhat speculative, participatory study we tried to design a consequential entanglement between people and plants. “We” refers to a PhD student (the fermentation enthusiast) and a product designer (the horticulture enthusiast) and 22 plant-loving participants. Over two months in spring 2017 we practically explored our personal role in bio-material circulations. Yet our negligence for the basic needs of nutrients-transforming bacteria made us extremely susceptible to floundering plants and inconvenient confessions, and postponed little breakthroughs.
