Pavia Rubra has many characteristics.

The quest to discover  “who is Pavia Rubra” was driven through a series of ACTs with pupils on the Estate. The ACTS merged performance , poetry ,  script writing and planting in a new public space.

asking pupils at the end of each ACT  ” do any of you know who is Pavia Rubra”

The responses and the character that was formed included:

– Pavia Rubra is an ancient organisation of growers

– Pavia Rubra is each and everyone of us.
