I first heard about Grow! Loughborough when a fellow Transition Town member devised the idea. Aiming to combine nature, art and self care, it was just my kind of event.
Along with Maxine Greer sketching from her wheelbarrow and the beautiful but Prisoner-esque wicker spheres suspended from the trees, there were local eco organisations and businesses including The Crop Club and Transition Loughborough. I bought a loom and finger knitting kit made by Little Bird SOS. In all, it was a relaxing afternoon.
Art and nature are natural fit. Grow your skills by spending more time on both.
