Coloco

Coloco is a collective of landscapers, artists, urban planners and botanists working in a variety of mediums; they do mapping, physical gardening and advocate for policy. Coloco also participates in a theoretical realm, initiating speculative projects which challenge the way we think about our cities’ green spaces.

Coloco believes that landscape is a both a common good and an opportunity for collective thought and action. Coloco explores diverse forms of activism, from workshops and conferences, to active forms of gardening in order to utilize gardening as a form of community building. Fundamentally, Coloco seeks to create places that can bring communities together and generate new ideas among segregated populations.

They begin this process with community engagement, wherein multiple meetings are held to gather diverse ideas. These meetings are a form of collectivization, wherein original cartographic and visualization tools are developed to help all participants arrive at a shared project vision.
