Plant Information Resources

These plant information resources were created as part of the Boundary Way Project’s ‘Postcards from the Plot’ project in 2020. It was a creative project that explored the meaning and importance of allotments in the present day through online activities, workshops and inspiring stories from growers in Wolverhampton and beyond. The idea behind the project was to forge creative, personal and natural connections in a time of social distancing. These information sheets were commissioned from herbalist Maria Billington as part of the project exploring commonly found plants and their uses.

The creation of these resources was made possible through funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thank you to herbalist Maria Billington for providing the information and images for these resources.
