On the 28th of March this year, I set up a group on Facebook called Green Island Veg Economy Group, (G.I.V.E for short) on the Isle of Wight. The concept is very simple; If you have surplus fruit or veg, which you have grown yourself, place it on a table outside your house on your driveway for others to take for free. Because it's spring time, people have also been sharing lots of seeds and seedlings with one another.
My background is in art and, after setting up and running Art Galleries from disused and abandoned buildings here on the Island, I found the art world to be less than satisfying, so in 2018/19 I undertook a large project to combine art with something more meaningful. I collected plastic rubbish from the beaches around the Island, culminating in an exhibition (called Pick Up The Pieces) which displayed my findings, along with documentation on what I had found.
