10-11 am
Datscha Radio’s “World Gardening” is dedicated to gardening strategies and observations from all over the world. Assembled according to the daily theme, short or long features and interview snippets, acousmatic interventions, texts and also excerpts from productions by other radio stations will be gathered here. From Zambezi to Iceland, from Germany to Australia, from England to Tasmania…

Saturday 26th August 2017
We enter a radio studio in Zambezi to talk about gardening and radio-making: a special from Radio Continental Drift / Claudia Wegener. Supplemented with Pomeranian cucumber recipes and Icelandic tomatoes.

Sunday 27th August 2017
Biotopes of the future – are they to be found in this world? Radio art from Brazil, an interview on Iceland’s horticulture, futuristic birds from Hong Kong, and two other surprises are on the programme.

Monday 28th August 2017
Urban gardens and garden-like environments, flower markets and birdsong: ethnographic sound bites from Sardinia, Tasmanian topiary art, defensive tactics of the fieldfare bird, and a literal description of London’s East End for gardeners in sound and language (en/de) congregate here.

Tuesday 29th August 2017
The “Subterranean Meditations” are devoted to the “material” and poetics of earth – in the widest sense: volcanic and glacial, stones, water, air, bacteria, caves and dwarfs.
