Hi Artists and Scientists,
As there's only one more week of this group before meetup shuts it down, I thought I'd take advantage of this amazing list of people to make a call for participation ...
The Wayward Plant Registry (http://www.waywardplants.org
) will be hosting - the week of January 11th - a drop-off shop for Ex-Xmas trees at old Granville Arcade, a 1930s indoor market in Brixton, culminating in a community planting of Exxmas Forest.
If you are getting a tree for Christmas, please get one with roots / in a pot and participate in the reforesting of Brixton! If you are unable to drop off the tree and are located nearby we could arrange for a pick-up.
But also - we are looking for volunteers to help run the shop and envision Exxmas Forest, as well as people who have other ideas of how to make forest elements (seating, signage, lighting for example) from post-holiday waste. If anyone has an artistic or scientific interest in forests or post-holiday waste and reuse - or see any other overlaps in our work, please get in touch!
Please contact [address removed] if you're interested in participating - either by donating your trees or collaborating on the shop!
