Throw Sow Grow is Go! With Funding from Grow Wild.
12 April 2018
We're really excited that our project 'Throw Sow Grow' is now well underway and getting such a great response! It's been funded by Grow Wild. We're one of a network of community gardening groups across the UK who are supported by Grow Wild in their mission to transform spaces and change lives with native wildflowers & fungi!
The funding is helping us deliver 'Throw Sow Grow' - taking our mobile pottery and a range of wonderful wild flowers to the gardeners/soon-to-be gardeners of Whiteway! More about the project here.
With over 50 pots made at our event in March we're looking forward to planting up the fired pots at Mays 'Love Your Park' event and completing our hand holdable gardens!
We've been working with a group of young people at Southside's Project Night and the group are becoming really skilled in using the potters wheel under the guidance of our artist Zoe Cameron - Jude and I are hoping they can teach us how to throw a pot! We've also been making pots by hand and a raku firing of the best pieces is imminent!
Next week we take the pottery and plants to Bath City Farm to work with the Bushcraft group.
