Micro Gardens, Morecambe 9/22 by Charles Whitehead

Feel the weight of all the seeds
in a poppy head pour into your palm.
Touch multicoloured beans one by one.
Rock a box of seeds which slap side to side,
held in four hands, one person is deaf and non-verbal.

Exploring

Discussing
Imagining
Making

The fabulous architecture of seed heads.
“I grew this, have some”: creating futures.
Gardens, farms, trade, distance, migration.
Trail of Tears, growing teff to make injera, sourdough from 8 square metres of city wheat.
Origami envelopes: repurposed paper to recycle again in compost.

Sitting on the grass.
Finding what interests you.
Experiencing what you find.
Seeds for yourself, for your child, for your family, for your friend.
