The people of Geneva were invited to come to the park Conches for the first Switzerland subbotnik


October 3, 2009
Conches, Switzerland

When visitors enter the Conches garden, they see an immense carpet of flowers which seems to have been planted by the city parks and gardens department. The pattern in the garden beds is indecipherable at ground level but when viewed from the top floor of nearest house it falls into place as the head of Lenin.

Floral pictures are a long-standing tradition, and are still popular today. The people of Geneva were invited to come to the park on 3 October 2009 for the first Switzerland subbotnik to plant the flowers. Volunteer workers from all social backgrounds had time to mix and talk about art and culture while they were working the soil.
