About us: how we are growing!
The River of Flowers Story above explains how your organisation could start a River of Flowers in your city and help to 'feed the bees that feed us'!
Today the River of Flowers Central London joins the other new Rivers of Flowers in Bristol, London, Manchester and York, which started this year. Sponsored by The Savoy as part of their 125th Anniversary celebrations, the River of Flowers Central London connects the organisations on the North and South Embankments of the Thames, which are growing bee-friendly and wild forage and habitat for bees and other pollinators. The trail is captured in a Wildflower Walk aimed at inspiring other local organisations and visitors to grow wild!
