Eco Graffiti.....What you ask!?!?

So, surfing the web awhile back I found this great website...well it's really a blog, and she is a landscape designer and finds the most incredible ideas and "stuff" out there in the design world. (I can’t show you my reference site...yet....her site is WAY better then mine and I want you to be MY loyal reader) Ok, back to ECO is where you take living moss and create pictures, words, saying etc., on walls in parks, your home - anyplace where you want. It is by far one of my favorite things!!
From all my online research it looks like Anna Garforth is the pioneer for this idea. There is little information about her, but from what i gather she lives in the UK and has a design studio and this was/is one of her projects. (please let me know if i am incorrect here)

Do it yourself Eco Graffiti AKA MOSS MILKSHAKE!!

~ 2+ cups of moss
~ 2 cups of buttermilk
~ 2 cups of water (or beer)
~ 1/2 tsp. sugar
Blend up ingredients so the consistency is a thick milk shake.
They amount of ingredients is not an exact science.
Some people add clay, fish emulsion and cow manure.
Then you can just paint the milkskake on the rocks or walls where you want it to grow.
It will take several applications to get your recipe right, your application right and the location right. Have Fun!!!
