Supported by the Big Lottery Fund and led by Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew; Grow Wild inspires communities, friends, neighbours and individuals across the UK to come together to transform local spaces, by sowing, growing and enjoying native wild flowers. Grow Wild is creating four high profile flagship sites; one in each country, voted for by the public and rolled out between 2014 and 2017. Each receives £120,000 to create a site, which will inspire Grow Wild participants and leave a lasting Grow Wild footprint in England, Wales Scotland and Northern Ireland. The winning English site will be chosen by the public vote in a national campaign, which launched on 7 October and closes on 4 November 2017. Led by Landlife and Manchester City Council, Tale of Two Cities is one of the five shortlisted sites for Grow Wild’s England Flagship campaign. Combining two great northern cities, the project seeks to transform prominent spaces into wild flower celebrations to connect their places and tell their stories. If successful at winning the Grow Wild English flagship, the Manchester sowing will focus on Hulme Park and Alexandra Park as well as Princess Parkway one of the gateways to the city. In Liverpool, areas of Everton Park will be transformed with stimulating wild flower displays, created over the top of iconic demolished streets. Inspiring arts activities will include the expansion of a stunning meadow by environmental artist Rebecca Chesney. In Manchester, working with partner The National Trust and their Gardener In Residence Sean Harkin, wild flower landscapes will be created along the Princess Parkway, which is seen by 100,000 passers-by daily and in at least three primary schools and parks.
