Community Gatherings for FLOW

A community gathering took place on 26 June at Boatyard Bakery (thanks Emma!) to talk about FLOW going forward and how to care for it as a community. You can find notes from discussions here. We explored forming into three groups: treecare; FLOWculture and FLOW community & communication to talk about different aspects of the project. The next gathering is Thursday 4th October at 7pm at Redhills Primary School, Landhayes Road, Exeter, EX4 2BY. All are welcome including newcomers!  One of things we will discuss at this gathering will be the second Exwick Wassail in January 2019.


Commissions for FLOW: community bench making project at Flowerpot Meadows in September & October 2019

This autumn we are excited to be working with Carving Communities (CC) and young people (aged 11 years and above) in Exwick to make a sculptural bench out of wood using hand tools. The project will run from September 16, 2018 and take place entirely on site, next to CC’s mobile tool box on Exwick Playing Fields at the end of Ennerdale Way. Young people who would like to take part will need signed agreement from a parent or guardian before they join the project. Up to 8 people will be able to take part each morning or afternoon session.

We are delighted to be working with James because his sculpted benches are visual striking, expertly crafted and co-designed and made by and with people in the places that he works. James is keen to develop a sense of ownership of the bench through the process of working and making together and then gifting this to back the wider community.
