Floraffiti® invites you to become a Floragardener and plant words around Chapel Hill! Let's get dirty! Come dressed in comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes to garden. All tools, gloves, and materials will be supplied for ages 13yo and up. We will be planting words selected from local environmental justice-themed poetry workshops addressing the social-political challenges and inequities exacerbated by the climate crises and how it affects those most impacted by environmental justice. We will begin at the Morehead Planetarium, meeting on the sidewalk at the street parking and move to other locations in Chapel Hill as time permits. Registration is required. This event will take place rain or shine!
After the Floragardening, and when the words have sprouted with their green foliage, there will be a sign at each site with a QR code printed on it. Anyone who visits the words can scan the QR code with their smartphone and listen to the poem recorded at the workshops. There will be a different poem at every site.
