Judi Harvest: "March 21, 2013, I began the Honey Garden on the grounds of the Linea Arianna glass factory in Sacca Serenella as the permanent part of my site specific installation, “Denatured: Honeybees + Murano.” Six boatloads of soil, 100 carpets of sod, 500 flowering plants, 30 fruit trees, a crane and a 100 year old pomegranate tree later, we installed 4 honeybee families in brightly colored hives. By August, 2013 the garden produced over 60 nectarines and 60 kilos of honey, pomegranates and picnics."
