About #vherbage

#vherbage is a collective work in digital ecopoetics from the students of CRWR260: theory + practice of creative writing, in collaboration with students from BIOC301: plant biochemistry, created at the okanagan campus of the university of british columbia, led by Sonnet L’Abbé, PhD

#vherbage explores four ideas:

the twitter poem, #vherbage, was composed publicly, collectively and online, by students and observers, on March 4, 2014 at the university of british columbia, okanagan as part of UBC’s Celebrate Research Week 2014

#vherbage is deeply inspired by the work of ecopoet angela rawlings in her online multidisciplinary series, gibber

a special #vherbage shout-out to Dr. Susan Murch, CRC and her students for their participation in this work, and to Dr. Ashok Mathur, Head of Creative Studies for supporting this collaborative digital creative research and pedagogy
