Flower Force is designed to mobilize individuals to return developed spaces to nature. By planting native wildflowers in their yards, participants of this eco-art project beautify their homes and neighborhoods and create islands of natural habitats for local fauna.
Cortada's charcoal drawings will be tiled and transformed into living gardens: The art work is to be cut into pieces, exhibited on a grid and distributed along with native wildflower seeds to participants.
Participants will plant the wildflower seeds at home or in the community, dedicating their garden to someone who has inspired them. Aftwerwards, they will upload photos of their garden online.
