Event Description

Wildflowering L.A. is a native wildflower seed planting initiative throughout Los Angeles County beginning in October 2013 by artist Fritz Haeg.

Wildflowering L.A. brings a wild and beautiful seasonal native landscape to open plots of land throughout Los Angeles County. 50 sites are selected from an open call based on public visibility and distribution across the county. Owners of selected sites are given free native wildflower seed mixes from The Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers & Native Plants. Soil preparation, seeding, and wildflower tending is demonstrated and one of four custom wildflower seed mixes is prescribed – Coastal, Flatlands, Hillside, and Roadside – inspired by Reyner Banham’s 1971 book, Los Angeles: The Architecture of Four Ecologies. Each of the participating sites is officially identified with a prominent carved wood sign. The project culminates with an exhibition in spring 2014.

If you would like to participate there are still available seeds!

If you are interested in participating:

-You should have ownership of (or permission from the owner) an open plot of land that is sunny and completely visible from a public street.

-Seeds are provided for areas from 500–2000 sq ft.

-A 3' x 5' wood sign is installed on each site by the project team after the seeds are planted by the owners in November. 

-Each site will be identified on a published map and photographed before and after for the spring exhibition. 

-Please email a photo of the site taken from the street or public viewing spot and the complete address to wildfloweringla@nomadicdivision.org by November 6, 2013.  

Wildflowering L.A. is supported by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation.   Visit www.wildflowering.org for more information.
