Encouraging fields of wildflowers and weeds...

helping the bees and bugs in the environment :-)

Something being sent soon.

Thank you so much! :)

Great idea! I left my typical English lawn go wild last spring in front of the house, to the disgust of one neighbour but supported by the other. I have left all my 'weeds' alone in my tiny back garden for years so this is great!

This call violates the rules of  MAIL ART which is NO SALES!

That is right, sorry I did support it. I shall not contribute. One suggestion, selling the art is wrong but perhaps an entry fee? Or putting a collecting box for the charity at the exit?

The museum can make postcards with the art and put them for sale in their shop since we give them the right to use it for their fundraising effort, but requesting originals and then selling them to the public will be wrong. As artists, we will benefit more if the originals are kept in the museum as part of their collection. I like the call, but I think this decision to sell the original violates Mail Art's rules. 

yes ,I will send you ....wild flowers !
