An ecological project using photography, art and poetry to link two wildflower meadows is taking root in Melbourn.
Liz Williams – who founded the Clear Crescent Writers group with Yvonne Chamberlain – has planted a patch of wild flowers outside her home with the help of South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Rob Mungovan.
As part of the Chain of Wildflowers scheme, a second patch is planned by the pavilion and Melbourn Sports Ground.
Each family on the route between Clear Crescent and the recreation ground will be given a pack of wild flower seeds to plant in their own gardens and verges.
Transforming waste spaces will be at the heart of the project, with the aim of collecting plant stories as the basis for poetry and art workshops within the community.
