Grow Wild is funding Seeds for the Desert in partnership with RSA Hull and Hull School of Art and Design to create new art and ecology installation in 2014.  Grow Wild is a dynamic £10.5m mass participation programme, led by Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew to bring people and communities together to inspire transformations of unloved urban spaces, gardens and windowsills with nature into wildlife-friendly wild flower patches.  Pete Coates is currently collected lots of old stuff to reinvent the car as planter!
