Koshi Kawachi’s Manga Farming: Broccoli bookmarks.


1 bag of radish, buckwheat, broccoli, rucola or basil seeds

1 expired manga comic or book

1 daily dose of sun, water and air

Place your seeds in between a few of your favourite pages of your manga comic or book before binding tightly together with rubber bands. Pour a glug of water into the top of your manga, set aside by a window and watch it grow!

Japanese artist Koshi Kawachi uses this method to turn piles of used manga mags into miniature vegetable gardens, both permanently bookmarking her most-loved stories and recycling something that would otherwise go to waste.

Plant cuttings in your chic-lits, grow hedges in your horror stories and sow flowers in your fantasies.
