A Tale of Two Cities Liverpool and Manchester is the winning Grow Wild England Landmark Project.  Grow Wild is creating four high profile flagship sites, one in each UK country, and voted for by the public.  A Tale of Two Cities won the public vote in England in November 2014 against very strong and excellent competition.  We are so very proud and excited to have won. 

Our vision is to deliver a unique cultural landmark project in the northwest of England to:

-       redefine wildflower best practice

-       turn people’s heads and hearts

-       inspire new Grow Wild communities

We will sow bold landscapes in both Liverpool and Manchester on a grand scale – about 10 hectares (equivalent to 20 football pitches!), and into the spaces between where we can.  We will unite the people and communities in both cities to experience, celebrate and create Grow Wild adventures.  We will ignite a new generation of wildflower lovers.

A Tale of Two Cities has won £120,000 to achieve this. Liverpool and Manchester will be forging new pathways between environment and culture, using music and arts practice, to bring the beauty of wildflowers to people in intriguing and imaginative ways. Our project will run until 2017.
