Eco Animators: Operation Wildflower
Be part of our movement to protect and grow wildflowers in Folkestone, Hythe & Romney Marsh. Learn, grow & share through our hands-on animation workshops for all ages and help us open eyes to our unique wild district.
Our nomadic team of Animators, Filmmakers, Artists, Writers, Musicians and Environmental enthusiasts work with community groups of all ages from Folkestone, Hythe and Romney Marsh. Our mission is to champion our precious wildflowers by creating animated films to highlight the social, environmental, economic, spiritual and educational importance of our native wildflowers. All the films will be published online and screened throughout the district.
Are you an artist, creative, writer, musician or environmental enthusiast?
Would you like to be part of Operation Wildflower?
We welcome volunteers to help our community groups to create artwork, animated films and content for our campaign.
