Apple Peel Poetry

Apple Peel Poetry Installation - Paul Conneally 2014

During artist activist Anne-Marie Culhane's Fruit Routes Harvest Celebration at Loughborough University, Conneally invites visitors to peel an apple, trying to create as long a single piece of peel as they can They then measure the peel in centimetres and find the page number equivalent to the length of peel in a book of collected Wordsworth poems. They count down the number of lines equal to the number of letters in their name, copy it out on a label replacing one word with the word apple and hang the peel and poem up across the gable end of a garden shed.

Stonehouse Seedstore - Anne-Marie Culhane 2014

Stonehouse Seedstore created by Anne Marie Culhane in Stonehouse, Plymouth, UK.

‘Anne Marie has been working with residents from across the area to collect individual stories about our relationships to plants through growing and eating. The Seedstore also includes plants that are, or have been important in the story of Stonehouse, gathered through conversations with residents and historians. She has use these to create a seed store as a community resource, a connection to the natural world and a celebration of diversity in Stonehouse.’

The plan now is to keep the Store at Union Corner for people to see and read the stories, to go out to events, and for the swapping of seeds.
