Read the Spring E-newsletter here!



Seeds photographed in the Mt Coot-Tha Lab last year.


Inside the British Pavilion at the Expo in China last year... seeds came from the Millennium Seed Bank Project where I am headed in October for an informal 3 week Residency.


                                                                                                                                                                       
On Saturday I posted out the Spring Edition of my E-news Bulletin...  
read it here   Spring Update: E-news                                                                      
It has lots of news on the homage to the Seed project in recent months and what's coming up. If anyone's interested in the 'colours of nature 'workshops then I will be doing an all-day one later this year... December 3rd ...and there's plenty planned for 2012 that you can read about at this newsletter!

Read the story about school students thinking about seeds, food and biodiversity...





An interesting day was spent with year 6 students - 12 & 13 yr olds redesigning our approach
to foods systems and how we think about this part of our life. Great day... loved this contribution.

Hi Sophie, I just came across this, this morning and thought it perfect timing and an added dimension if you've not seen it before:

Much love to you,
