A micro-commission for Spacex in Cranbrook (a new town built on the edge of Exeter). I created a Seedbox working with Incredible Edible Cranbrook and the Cranbrook Potluck. The seeds have come from around Cranbrook and have been shared from further afield to start off this ‘new’ growing community by linking it to existing seed saving and growing networks in the region and creating a resource to be shared as a practical resource, at events & for learning and education. Seeds in the Seedbox include edible plants and plants for wildife and pollinators. In 2018, Seedbox will be housed in the new Learning Centre in Cranbook Country Park. Get in touch with Cranbrook Potluck on facebook if you would like any seeds or to find out more.
