Mind Meadows is one of a number of artworks evolved from the Plants, Prison & Potential programme, devised by Faye Claridge based on Royal Horticultural Society archives from a WW1 internment camp. The programme uses archives to inspire creative workshops around wellbeing and gardening and its outcomes are participant-led. At HMP Hewell the group became interested in the affects of changing the built environment and co-produced a large area of permanent murals.
