Fed up of being stuck indoors? Are you happy to see nature blooming again as spring unfolds?
Then why not join RAMM in a seed-planting extravaganza? Inspired by RAMM’s seed exhibitions in summer 2021, Seedscapes: Future-Proofing Nature and Léonie Hampton: A Language of Seeds, we have produced six ‘Growing Together’ seed activities to take part in. Plant one a week, and learn a few fun facts along the way. A new activity will be released on our social media channels each Monday in April and early May. All seeds are available from the RAMM shop for £5 inc. postage from Thursday 1 April.
Seeds include tasty aromatic herbs, bright and bold flowers and magically medicinal blooms. All are bee/ nature-friendly and easy to care for in a garden or on your windowsill.
Maya Herbolzheimer, project lead for Growing Together, said:
“Growing Together is our way of inspiring our communities to come together and re-ignite their love of nature. We’ve all been stuck indoors more than we would like recently, but we know how much people value being in the outdoors and enjoying the world around us. Picking up our gardening gloves, digging in the dirt, and growing beautiful flowers and useful herbs can really help our wellbeing. By sharing this with each other through the Growing Together project we can reconnect with the world.
We want to encourage everyone to share their growing journeys with us this spring – tag us on social media, email us your photos or even send us a letter!”
Growing Together launches on Monday 5 April. Ready to get involved? Find out more here.
