Abstract

The social, educational, economic and health benefits from community gardens often stay limited to the gardeners. 'We' is a community-oriented robotic system designed to extend such benefits to the public and community. It consists of 1. 'We-Sense,' garden sensors that encourage community participation, and 2. 'We-Grow,' a responsive installation that reflects the state of and allows to explore the garden and its social life. 'We' aims to provide awareness about the community gardens in public spaces, to increase public literacy about food and community gardening, provide out-of-class education, encourage participation in citizen science and increase community engagement.
