Testing Ground for a Public Clock is a planting scheme or 'test-bed' which transforms a disused field next to Gravel Hill Farm workers' cottages into a non-mechanical clock. Planned and created through a process of collaboration with local growers and gardening groups, the plants have been carefully selected for their predictable flower opening and closing times - as first hypothesised by Carl Linnaeus in his book Philosophia Botanica, 1751. The project has been developed by artist Ruth Ewan as part of her residency at North West Cambridge Development with Contemporary Arts Society and InSite Arts.

This free event will involve:

• A introduction to the project by Ruth Ewan on the ideas behind Testing Ground for a Public Clock

• Buffet Lunch in the studios (provided)

• Getting involved in sowing seeds in the meadow and in planting plug plants

Please bring wellies/ boots and appropriate outdoor clothing as the field may be muddy.

Children attending should be under family supervision.
