Czech-ing out the potholes in Prague...
I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at TEDxPrague recently. The theme of the conference was Crossing Borders and I was able to show all of the wonderful pothole gardens I've been sent, with the new the world pothole garden map. I talked about creativity and how good it feels to get out there and create something - even if it's as tiny and ephemeral as a pothole garden.
The other speakers were truly inspiring - from an ex-sex industry worker, to a career wedding guest, an Iceland marathon runner, and a scientist working out ways to store files in our DNA - the event was a great success. There was even a stilt walking circus during one of the breaks - amazing.
I managed some time to create a little garden on Marla Strana, near the famous Charles Bridge. We had some classic reactions from passers by.
