Creeping thyme for the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais Heritage Circuit: A community project for the future public work of art in Farm Point

The Municipality of Chelsea, as part of the Water Heritage Project initiated by the local centre for development of the MRC des Collines-de-l'Outaouais and Cultural Commission des Collines-de-l'Outaouais, has chosen to honor the theme by representing Chelsea’s Cottage Life. Further to a call for tenders, the Municipality selected Marc Walter's project in late 2016. The Art piece will soon be located near the Farm Point community center.

In order to make this work of art a great participatory and community project, we invite Chelsea residents who have a patch of Wild Thyme offering to bring it to Farm Point to plant it on the circular hold of the work of art that will be Materialized next June 17 . If you are interested in participating in this collective effort, please indicate your intention to with your full name. A mention of your contribution will be posted on the municipality's website.

Thank you for contributing to the cultural development of our community!
