Poppy fields

From now until Anzac Day thousands of handmade poppies will bloom across Auckland to mark the centenary of the First World War.

Volunteers including schoolchildren, RSA members and community groups have made more than 20,000 poppies for the Peace Poppy Project, a brainchild of west Auckland artist Cristina Beth.

The poppies will be 'planted' across Auckland, greeting people on their way to Anzac Day commemorations. After 25 April, people will be able to 'pick' the poppies in return for a small donation to their local RSA.
