Local residents and visitors at the Open Garden: Hjortetakly

Bio

Hjortetakly is a small garden lot in the village Viemose in Kalvehave, southern Sealand. It has recently been bought by poet and translator Shëkufe Tadayoni Heiberg as a gesture to protect the soil and retain space and shelter for all animals who inhabit the place: the insects, the staghorn and sumac trees, the elderflower, birch and pines - or the ones visiting the garden, such as deer, foxes, hedgehog and the birds.

Photo Dump, and Thank you Alert

Summer is here, and so is our season of expressing gratitude. On June 26th, Hjortetakly welcomed local residents at Kalvehave, extending conversations that architects Emilie Boye Kjær and Leonora Krog had already started with the residents earlier. Emilie and Leonara have been working at Hjortetakly for the past few weeks, threshing overgrown netted bushes, making pathways, small clearances, portals and gates that can welcome and hold multispecies guests (including deers) with care.

At the open garden, visitors gifted the place stones, plants, and even books - adding to a growing sense of an archive, and a refuge for guests in the space. Emilie and Leonara even served fermented elderflower juice, and raspberry water, - all sourced from within Hjortetakly. People welcomed summer, Hjortetakly, pruned overgrown fir; biologist Anja Vensild Hørnell documented 66 species in the place, and the kids playing around even found and archived a dead rat’s skeleton. More on these soon!
