Future Foodscapes: Grow Warwick
Future Foodscapes: Grow Warwick was a pilot project, funded by the Research Development Fund at Warwick, in preparation for a larger research project on applied arts and local food initiatives, particularly community gardens.
Future Foodscapes: Grow Warwick launched The Apple Anthology, published by Nine Arches Press in September 2013. It brings together a feast of new work by poets, horticulturists, photographers, translators, artists and plant biologists. Well-known names and budding new talents explore the cultivation and culture of apples and orchards from a range of innovative cross-disciplinary perspectives. Poet and environmental scientist David Morley has contributed a Foreword to complement the anthology’s pieces.
