Belonging

A collection of collages form this children's book by Jeannie Baker about how an individual can generate change within a community to reclaim the streets and create a 'home' that extends beyond the walls of a house into the garden and the streets making space for social interaction, for children, community, wildlife and plants.

Jeannie says "the word ‘belonging’ implies an emotional connection. If one wants to really belong to something one has to work at it and contribute to it."
