In 2014 I was commissioned by Stonehouse Timebank & Take A Part to create an artwork in response to Stonehouse and its community. Over six months I collected 100 stories about our connections to and relationships with plants. These were sourced from across the community including sheltered housing, on street interviews, shop holders, homeless hostels and from community groups and events. I also included plants that are important in the natural history of the area. Seeds and cuttings of these plants have been sourced as a portable community resource and a celebration of diversity. The seeds and stories were displayed at a public celebration in October 2014.
