Environmental artists begin Dartmoor moss-growing project

Read the full story from the BBC.

Environmental artists have begun a project growing moss to help preserve Dartmoor’s habitat.

The Art and Energy Collective is inviting people to make small woollen nests in which sphagnum moss can be planted and grown on the moor.

Their project, How to Bury the Giant, aims to educate people on how moss eventually forms peatlands which store carbon below ground.

They are working with partners and schools on the project.
