Shieldfield Art Works (SAW)

Shieldfield Wheatfield is an urban food-growing project with artist Mikey Tomkins and local residents that began in summer 2019. After talking with participants and residents after his mapping workshops, the feedback was that there was a curiosity to actually grow some food in Shieldfield.

So SAW and Mikey collaborated with local residents to grow wheat in Shieldfield that was harvested, threshed, milled and baked into 10 community loaves to share out at our Grounded Harvest Festival on Saturday 3rd October 2020.

The Grounded Harvest Festival was a collaboration between Shieldfield Art Works and Dwellbeing, as an outcome of their Covid-19 Response Programme.
