“Andy Warhol said land really is the best art,” says Richard Scott, director of the National Wildflower Centre. “Nobody would think of a pop artist saying that – but it goes with my experience. What you can do with a piece of land is incredible.”
Richard has worked on the wild planting project since it began in 2000 as a Millennium project, first near Liverpool, now at the Eden Project in Cornwall. It aims to reverse ecological decline, and bring wildflowers back into the UK’s living culture.
