Dear collaborators, colleagues and friends, along with the full bloom of spring we are pleased to bring you the latest seasonal newsletter from FoAM. This time round we have a lot of wrapping up to report - and much that is soon to be unwrapped. Read on for the full story.

Cat Jones residency: a seasonal botanic retreat

Between February and April 2013 Cat Jones was in residence at FoAM researching for her project, Transcontinental Garden Exchange — an experiment in communication between Homo sapiens and flora to highlight how our green friends have seeded change in our social history and behaviour. Whilst at FoAM Cat researched the scientific and social history of human-plant relationships, plant signalling and the possibilities for ther manifestation between humans and flora.

The identity of trees: workshop and walk

Pursuing the research and reflections we began in the Legal Identity for Trees workshop last October, Heath Bunting, Rasa Alksnyte and An Mertens hosted another ‘arboreal identity’ workshop on 6–7 April, this time part of the Bessst initiative supported by the VGC. We shared the results with a wide audience during the 2013 Erfgoeddag (Heritage Day) on 21 April and the Zoniënmars event on 28 April.
