(Photo montage courtest of Plantlife Patchwork Meadow Project)
A little while ago, I was contacted by a representative of the wild plant conservation charity Plantlife. They are asking the public to create a giant “Patchwork Meadow” of textile squares, celebrating our native (UK) wild plants and their central role in British Culture. Anyone can submit a square, whether amateur or professional. Once completed the “meadow” will be shown at a series of exhibitions around the UK , beginning at the Wild North Festival in Caithness and Sutherland. I'm not sure if I'll be making a square or not, but it sounded like a fun and worthwhile project, so I said I'd pass the information on to anyone out there reading my blog - do take a moment to go check it out!
