SEED QUILT AT REDPATH
JUNE – NOVEMBER  2013.

Community engagement Seed Hunting workshops were held at McGill University’s
RedPath Museum. Thirty-five Participants hunted for seeds on the University grounds. After harvesting seeds, the participants sat down to a buffet of seeds to create their personal Seed Quilt 1ft x 1ft patch with hand-made biodegradable paper and cotton thread. The quilt patches were  sewn together to create an 8ft x 12ft botanical art object.  For 3 months the quilt was on exhibit. Then it was planted, watered and weeded. The quilt  continues to grow today  in the plot next to the Museum.
