When the grass dances

Valerie Gillies & I invite you to walk with us among the grasses in our new collection of poetry and photography When the grass dances

The collection is in four parts. The first ‘Approaching the grasses’ is our introduction.

‘Knowing the grasses’ is about coming to recognise the grasses as individual species.

‘Using the grasses’ is concerned with the social history and customs around grass.

‘Living with the grasses’ sees the grasslands populated with the animals and birds of the field.
