With burgeoning highways and epic shopping malls dotting the Klang Valley, the memory of huge trees lining the streets lingers in shrinking green pockets. Malaysia is a country that was economically tied to agriculture. Despite a move to the industrial and service based sectors, this project seeks to document and explore the interactions of the urban dweller in the Klang Valley with their gardens in the public sphere.
