Members of XR-S have been busy during the coronavirus crisis, as they try to highlight the benefits lockdown has had on nature and wildlife.

They've been leaving packets of seeds and even seedlings at different locations across the city - including some bus stops - hoping people will pick them up and plant them somewhere.

Plus, if you have any seeds or plants you want to swap you can leave them in one of the boxes for others to use. 

XR-S has also been adding their own artwork to the city.

They've drawn chalk vines on walls which can be seen to be growing each day as part of the #paintthestreets campaign. 

The group says those vines will bear fruit by the end of May.
