100 Cauliflowers Invitation

Hi all,

This Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th November, environmental artist Kerry Morrison is inviting you all to come and see (and take part in) her '100 cauliflowers' installation on the peninsula be installed.Attached is a aerial view showing you where the plot is. Known as the 'bowling green' is on the riverside path between GMV and the O2.

You can park at the end of John Harrison Way and walk the 150 yards to the site. but better to walk, cycle, or get the bus there of course! The installation is a culmination of work over the past 6 months, in which Kerry researched the areas environmental history and issues, and worked with some local people to develop ideas.

see for more information. Kerry has been building the 'allotment' this week, and on Friday 23rd she will be joined by 15 pupils from John Roan School to plant the first 50 cauliflowers. This will take place between 1pm and 3pm.

On Saturday 24th, you are invited to come along between 12noon and 3pm to help plant the remaining 50 cauliflowers. The caulis will over winter and be harvested in the spring, possibly towards some kind of community feast. So if you are around at all on Friday 23 on Saturday 24th please do pop by, either to plant or just see it happening.

Many thanks
