Stunning botanical art will help celebrate the life of John Jeffrey

Drawing of the cone from a Jeffrey pine (Pinus jeffreyi) by Nicola Macartney.

Botanical artist Nicola Macartney and I are collaborating to help make an exhibition together at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RGBE) in 2018. Nicola is hunting for plant material associated with John Jeffrey, the main protaganist in GREEN GOLD. Some reward levels include an invitation to the exhibition and other events at RGBE.

Thank you to all those who have backed the book so far, which is now one-third funded.
