Harvest 2022

A community celebration of the landscape through the arts

Saturday 17 September, 6.30pm

Box Hill

Harvest is an annual event celebrating the outstanding landscape and view at Box Hill. You are invited to a mass picnic at Donkey Green while multiple choirs sing out across the hills, poets recite their specially created works all around a stunning art installation.

This year the focus is connections. Connections between each other and between us and nature. The art installation ‘Seeds of Hope’ by Diana Burch represents just that. This sustainable artwork is made purely from sticks and recycled yarns. Hundreds of local people, or all ages, backgrounds and abilities have contributed to this piece over the past few months. The mindful act of binding with the wool encouraged contemplation, as well as an openness with others doing the activity.

“In a world that often feels challenging, Seeds of Hope demonstrates a renewal of optimism by connecting us with each other and the natural world.”

– Diana Burch, Artist

You can have a go yourself and bring your hoop along to add to the installation. Diana has created this 1 minute video to explain the simple technique.
