On Sunday a team from Earthed spent the afternoon mowing our winning Make and Mow design into the long grass at Ashton Meadows. Our winning artist Elena was on hand to see her design ‘Coming Together Mankind Earth Life Junction’ take shape as Mick and the team triumphed against broken mowers and a very hot sun!
The design was finally mown in thanks to the help of passers by and local institutions. Penny Johnson and her dog Woody were instrumental in procuring a replacement mower from Bedminster Cricket Club and the Riverside Garden Centre provided another. Our thanks go out to them and everyone else that helped out.
We’ve shovelled and shaped, turfed and twisted, smeared and stitched, bolted, bashed and built. At the end of day three the place is starting to look like an exhibition ready to be filled with contributions, creations, ideas, stories and images.
If you have any stories, images, videos or memories of Ashton Court you’d like to share with us then get in touch,
Alternatively, just bring yourself along to the Earthed Weekend this Saturday and Sunday at the Create Centre.
All activities are free with some needing pre-booked tickets in advance. You can get your free tickets for the workshops on Eventbrite.
