June update

It’s definitely June and the temperature is dropping. Here is the monthly update.

1 month of Crowd Funding for Seed Studio to go

We have done so well fund-raising $1300 in 1month, donations of 1000’s seeds and 100 glass jars. But we welcome more donations of money, seed and glass jars.  Please donate here

The Seed Studio will open for spring!  It will be open on weekends so you can come and find lots of wonderful things to grow. The seed is free but I would love an exchange of stories, memories, drawings, produce, seed, found objects….. These are the seeds which my art grow from!  We need glass jars and seeds. So remember the 1st August 12am is the opening, all welcome
