This website serves as an archive for the ‘Stokes Croft Herbarium’ exhibition which was curated by Tim Floyd and took place at the Emporium, Bristol in April 2009. The show combined plant specimens with works of art that draw their influence from the plant kingdom.

Living and preserved plants were displayed alongside sculpture, installation, two dimensional pieces and images drawn directly onto the venues walls. The exhibition also featured information about local community allotments and gardening projects and a small 'library' of books to browse through.

Events organised as part of the exhibition included an urban wild food walk around the Stokes Croft area, foraged food preparation and a screening of Bill Mollison's 'Global Gardener' Permaculture documentaries.
