Garden Activities 

Each month resident artists participate in garden related activities such as harvesting fruits, berries, or vegetables while learning how to maintain a garden at The Volkovo Project Space.  In the months of August and September staff members and resident artists take part in traditional Balkan food preservation techniques like making Ajvar, tomato sauce, marmalade or pickling. The Volkovo Project Space is also a great place to enjoy some relaxation time and to get away from the city.
