韌性門
Anyweedy Door

引用哆啦A夢任意門的概念,只要心中想著或是說出想要去的任何地方,打開門後就能抵達;嚮往大自然的都市人,打開門後將會到哪裡?

 

城市裡的土地利用複雜,擾動頻繁,綠地存在於人工化的環境,種植特定的景觀植物、田園作物等,是一個所謂「美觀、綠化」,實際上卻與自然摩擦衝突,人為高度控制的地景。人們總是嚮往野外親近大自然,也會在生活中綠化環境,卻忽略最親近人類生活的野生植物──雜草,也是大自然的一部分。充滿韌性的雜草,因為是非預期中的植物,生長在非預期之處,以及人們長久以來與土地的疏遠而不瞭解,雜草普遍是不被接受的存在,常常除之而後快。卻忘了這塊土地上,還有許多生物仰賴著這些野花草生活,即便是一小塊雜草叢生之處,也是許多小生物的棲息覓食所在,是生物多樣性重要的根基,並提供生態系服務,讓人們直接或間接從生態系中獲得福利。

 

雜草稍慢在城市中進行環境教育之生態實驗,帶領民眾觀察自然演替之草相變化,以低度維管及有意識的野採來維護自然的生態特性與環境棲地,復育野採地,提升生物多樣性。這裡有原生野花草木、青草茶原料、野菜,也有強勢入侵植物、藥毒植物等,更是許多小生物棲居的家;邀請民眾於韌性門上描繪寫畫在地的雜草茶配方,為土地獻上祝福,並透過採集生活文化,梳理人與草木之間的關係,洞見雜草在每個人心中的樣貌與價值。

 

無論打開門後將會去哪裡,謹記彎腰低頭,關注腳步,向土地致意。​

 

Quoting the concept of the Dokodemo Door, as long as you think of or say any place you want to go in your heart, you can reach it after opening the door. People, who yearn for nature, where will they go when they open the door?

 

Land utilization in cities is complex and has frequent disturbances. Green space exists in an artificial environment. Planting specific landscape plants and pastoral crops is a so-called "beautiful and green" land that conflicts with nature because humans strictly control the landscape. People always yearn for being close to nature in the wild and will also green the environment in their lives, but ignore the wild plants most relative to human life-weeds, which are also part of nature.

 

Weeds are full of resilience because they are unexpected plants, grow in unexpected places, and people have long been alienated from the land without understanding. Weeds are generally unacceptable, and they are often eliminated quickly. However, people forgot that many creatures on this land depend on wildflowers and grasses to live; even a tiny patch of weeds is also a habitat for many small creatures. It is a vital foundation for biodiversity and provides ecosystem services that directly or indirectly benefit from ecosystem functions.

 

Remember to bow down, pay attention to the weeds, and salute the land no matter where you go after opening the door.
