Friday 30th April day 5 #Nationalgardeningweek
Gardens are immensely creative places choices are made not just about what plants to grow but hard landscaping too including art installations. Classical statues, contemporary sculptures and pots all say something about the garden spaces we make and how we use them even the colour of the fence says something.
At plot 33 we don't have much art yet but that's something we plan to change soon and today we made a start on it with the lovely Wonder Women group who came down to the plot to deliver letters we'd asked them to create to make a sign welcoming visitors. More letters will be delivered next week as we have to keep the groups small (covid) but it was lovely to sit, chat and sow some seeds (after the brief snow shower) before they left with some cans to paint and turn into planters
Greening Stoke is a project run in partnership between Festival Stoke and Letting in the Light. We are based in Stoke-on-Trent.
We are starting this adventure in January 2021 in the middle of a national Lockdown. Until things change and begin to open up we are abiding by all the Covid-19 Government guidance and for the foreseeable future only Rachel and Anne will be working, in a socially distanced way, to prepare and maintain Plot 33 for when we can invite the community to work with us.
