About us: how we are growing!

River of Flowers works with communities to create forage trails for bees, butterflies and other pollinators in cities. We design creative environmental solutions to improve urban landscapes for pollinators, and raise awareness about their importance in urban ecologies and culture. 

We are taking a new direction in 2016! Come with us on our exciting new journey as we:

LIAISE with new partners including the Bankside Urban Forest, Bee Bristol, Buglife, Get Bristol Buzzing and the Manchester Galleries Partnership, to create more urban foraging gardens. Contacts have already been in touch with us about AscenciónDublin, Leeds, Lewes and Mumbaiso if you live in any of these cities, please contact us about any wild places that you know about. To get your city on the map as a River of Flowers city, we need the location of at least one public place where wild plants already grow.

COMMUNICATE our ideas more effectively by working with artists and designers on installations, which bring art, science and urban ecology together in a way that resonates with people, River of Flowers has designed floral and verdant patchworks as hexagonal and triangular planters full of specific wild nectar and larval food plants, living installations that can flow over city squares and open spaces such as the Honeycomb Meadow project developed with Bee Bristol to provide more wildflower forage in barren city spaces.
