Thousands of Australians involved in the 5000 Poppies project have been invited to become part of Federation Story, the Federation Square digital time capsule on the history of Australia, with their own personal 5000 Poppies stories recording their involvement and thoughts on the outstanding nationwide community project.

Project creators, Lynn Berry and Margaret Knight, two Melbourne based fibre artists today said, "Recording the personal stories in Federation Story would provide a permanent record for those involved and future generations of their family members".

With Federation Story being used by the education sector for research into contemporary life, the 5000 Poppies project will provide a great example of community involvement in respect and remembrance of the sacrifices made by previous generations to protect Australia and provide us with nation we have today.
