In collaboration with the Geffrye Museum of the Home
June – December 2019
Over several months, we have been working in partnership with the Geffrye Museum of the Home to bring our members back to the island of Cyprus through plants and stories.
This empowering project for older Greek and Turkish Cypriots included lots of hands-on gardening and planting. Members made and planted their very own beautiful pots of plants. These activities enabled them to share their memories, feelings and stories about their home and the nature in Cyprus.
The project culminated in the planting of our very own living wall which is now displayed in the window of our centre. One of our regulars said the wooden structure holding the plants looks like a travelling boat.
