organised by Napier University, Edinburgh
Seeds of Comfort and Hope will create a living and sustainable memorial to those who have died from COVID-19 and for those who have experienced loss more generally.
Flower seeds and bulbs will be distributed in order to create sustainable, wildlife friendly, large or miniature remembrance gardens.
The bulbs/seeds will grow into a living memorial to those who have died either from COVID-19 or other causes, as well as to the wider sense of loss from the pandemic. Pictures of the gardens in bloom will be exhibited either virtually or in a static space depending on the trajectory of the pandemic.
The public and private gardens created will be space where people can come and sit to remember those who have died or reflect on loss more generally whilst watching the flowers bloom.
