Wayward plants...

BY HEATHER RING
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 09, 2009

Kicking off a new series of PechaKucha Nights in London... waywardplants.org The Wayward Plant Registry is a project of social exchange and botanical desire. A Wayward Plant, commonly referred to as a weed, is one growing where it is not wanted. They may be non-native, unsightly, invasive, high-maintenance, surplus or withering, and so are uprooted and abandoned, pulled from the earth (or pot!) as urban castaways. But wayward plants, whether common weeds, domestic breeds or rare botanical specimens, are truly in the eye of the beholder. The Wayward Plant Registry sets up Halfway Homes for these unwanted plants, and works to bring out the full potential of their beauty and meaning. The Registry considers systems of exchange, the personification of plant-life, the human stories revealed through plant migrations, and the nature of botanical desire. Know of a wayward plant? Wish to be a halfway home? Please contact: hello@waywardplants.org
