Germination header
The theme of Germination explored found materials, celebrating forests and the essential role public green spaces have played throughout lockdown.  We encouraged everyone to walk in the local park, make a mandala and share them with us.  Materials suggested were leaves, seed pods or other things you might find on a forest floor.
